Identity & Community College Students' Mobility

Low-income community college students hope to earn degrees that enable them to get good jobs and support their movement into a higher economic class. The community college experience is a time of transition when students face new environments and navigate the tension between consistency and change. We will explore the “identity framework”, its three layers of identity – actor, agent, author, and its utilization by One Million Degrees to promote Chicago community college students’ social mobility
