Education Policy, UT Austin
From New York Times:

This in-depth article discusses interventions and educational research at the University of Texas at Austin to improve the graduation rates of low-income, first generation college students. In April 2012, the University conducted one of the largest randomized experiments ever undertaken by social or developmental psychologists to test which interventions that addressed students’ anxieties about ability and belonging could improve the transition to college, especially for first-generation students. The University’s study of which measures could increase graduation rates may have broad implications for other selective universities aiming to recruit and retain low-income, minority students.
