Investigations into Economic Class

Help under-resourced and first-generation college students build the resources they need to succeed in college and in life. These Investigations webpages prepare you to organize, coordinate, and/or facilitate the award winning curriculum Investigations into Economic Class in America course for college students.

This curriculum guides students through an investigation of the impact of economic class on their lives. It helps under-resourced students build resources to successfully navigate the complex worlds of college and the workplace, plan for a brighter future for themselves and their families, and contribute to a sustainable community.

Designed to support college retention and completion initiatives, students discover the difference between life as it is now and what it might be in the future, and they are often motivated toward personal change. Learn how this unique program can empower individuals, build a more inclusive campus culture, and support increased community sustainability.
