The Institute for College Access & Success

Even if you get a full ride, college isn’t cheap. There’s a huge opportunity cost along with all kinds of hidden expenses that make higher education inaccessible to so many. When you consider that people with college degrees make nearly double the salary of those without degrees, you have to think that education after high school is pretty important (even though it’s pretty obvious that a big part of that statistic is driven by selection bias). The good news is that despite the continuously rising costs of college, the U.S. is at or near an all-time high in terms of the percentage of 25 year olds with a Bachelor’s degree. Still, there’s a long way to go, and that’s why The Institute for College Access & Success, which is based in Oakland, CA, exists. They aim to “make higher education more available and affordable for people of all backgrounds,” and they do this by “conducting and supporting nonpartisan research, analysis, and advocacy.”

Accessible Jobs

While The Institute for College Access & Success is a nationally focused organization, they pay particularly close attention to their home state of California. Their Current Projects include The Project on Student Debt, Keeping California’s Promise, Simplifying the FAFSA, College InSight, and Difficult Dialogues Initiative. The organization has only been around since 2004, but in their short history they’ve been able to put together an impressive list of accomplishments. If you’re concerned with college accessibility, and you have a background in research, then you might want to check out Jobs at TICAS. They are a small organization, so they only have one position posted right now and it’s not really entry level, but it’s close enough that I thought it was worth sharing. They’re looking for a Research and Policy Associate/Analyst. They’d really like someone with a Master’s Degree and a few years previous research experience; however, I’m sure they’d love to hear from really talented people who are passionate about the topic and have a strong background in education, public policy, or sociological research. You can apply by sending a cover letter and résumé to admin@ticas.org.
