Rating Colleges by Economic Mobility
Unlike traditional college rankings—which prioritize selectivity and test scores—the Economic Mobility Index places value on how well institutions serve their low-income students in addition to the proportion of low- and moderate-income students a school enrolls. Use this interactive map to explore institutions of higher education across the country and the economic mobility they provide their students. You can filter by the amount of economic mobility an institution offers, the level of federal financial aid they receive, the proportion of Pell Grant students, and more. Our data is also readily available for users to download for their own projects.
