Dr. Frances Contreras awarded funding from UCOP

A study on African American college choice titled, “Choosing to go Elsewhere: Why African Americans are not Enrolling in UC Campuses" will be conducted by Contreras in collaboration with faculty and students from four UC Campuses, including Thandeka Chapman. It is the hope that this study informs both policy and practice for the UC system for the next admissions cycle as it works to better address the needs of African American students throughout the UC system.
