Boosting Transfer Student Success at CUNY

Do you support college prep, access, and success, and are you curious to learn more about the landscape of college transfer within the CUNY system? In March 2024, Center for an Urban Future released a report about the college transfer experience within CUNY. The report first disaggregates and examines student outcomes data, identifying uneven experiences based on factors such as demographics and campus, and then looks at promising practices within CUNY and beyond. Finally, the piece outlines strategic recommendations, both on a CUNY-level and a city/state level, that would improve student outcomes and increase equity. Read the full report on the CUF website.

Measuring Youth Development: How Out-of-School Time Programs Collect and Use Data

Assessing an organization’s efforts can be a first step to improving them. At youth programs, good data can mean better decisions on staff training, student activities, and other key matters. This report from the Wallace Foundation looks at how afterschool, summer, and other out-of-school-time (OST) programs gauge their work and impact. It also examines the obstacles they face in doing so. In addition to surveying these common challenges, the report offers recommendations for how to remove those obstacles. It is based in large part on interviews and surveys of staff from OST programs that experts in the OST field recommended for study.

Setting the Stage: Practical Ideas for Implementing High-Quality Afterschool Arts Programs

From 2019 through 2021, five Boys & Girls Club organizations, with startup resources from The Wallace Foundation, set out to test whether they could develop the Youth Arts Initiative within the resource constraints of multipurpose OST programs. This report shares early lessons learned by these five OST organizations, which were documented by a two-and-a-half-year study. It provides a preliminary roadmap for multipurpose OST organizations seeking to increase the quality of their arts programming and close gaps in access to high-quality arts programming.
