2018 College Track Social Mobility Report 2018 Social Mobility Report - Page 18
This year’s investigation of social mobility
leaves us optimistic. Older graduates have
developed meaningful careers, earning
wages on par with the national average and
above their parents’ current earnings. While
only half of younger graduates get a full-time
job within six months, we are optimistic that
these younger cohorts will progress in their
professional development and follow in the
footsteps of the cohorts before them.
We will continue to survey our alumni yearly.
Our number of college graduates is expected
to double by 2020 to nearly 750 individuals,
spanning several regions in California,
Louisiana, Colorado, and Washington D.C. This
information equips us with a solid base from
which to learn more about the social mobility
and economic resiliency of first generation
college graduates in the 21 st century.
