Episode 20: Sara Goldrick-Rab: The Heart of a Community College Movement

00:0000:00

Dr. Sara Goldrick-Rab has long championed community colleges and their students. The self-proclaimed “scholar-activist” has well known among higher education leaders for stubbornly refusing to let unmet basic student needs go unaddressed any longer, and for being the engine behind research into homelessness, hunger, mental illness and other issues that can affect academic progress and completion. In this podcast, Jacob Bray, David Conner and Indya Rogers from ACCT talk to Goldrick-Rab about what inspired her to become a figurehead for this groundbreaking movement in higher education, what can be done to help students in the short and long terms, and what’s next for #RealCollege.

Goldrick-Rab is Professor of Higher Education Policy and Sociology at Temple University and founder of the Hope Center for College, Community and Justice in Philadelphia, as well as founder of the Wisconsin HOPE Lab. She has authored and co-authored several research papers in collaboration with ACCT, and she was named a 2018 Carnegie Fellow in recognition of her pioneering work.
