Current Research Partner Opportunities

The Colorado Lab seeks a highly qualified research team to analyze data from an existing Linked Information Network of Colorado (LINC) project to determine the degree-attainment and labor-market effects of Reverse Transfer. This program allows students who transferred from a Colorado two-year institution to a four-year institution to combine credits and apply them toward an associate degree. Colorado Re-Engaged Initiative (CORE), enacted into law as part of House Bill 21-1330, expanded the reverse transfer program to the entire university population by allowing any four-year student to apply for an associate’s degree after accumulating enough credit hours. Findings from the evaluation will help policymakers and higher education officials forecast the likely effects of CORE and adjust its implementation in order to maximize net benefits for students.

If interested, please email Val Henderson at to learn more. Please note this is NOT a funded opportunity.
