  1. Breakaway Learners: Strategies for Post-Secondary Success with At-Risk Students

    This powerful book explores how institutions of higher education can successfully serve "breakaway" students - first-generation, low-income students who are trying to break away from the past in order to create a more secure future. The gap between low-SES and high-SES students persists as efforts to close it have not met with great success. In this provocative book, Gross offers a new approach to addressing inequities by focusing on students who have succeeded despite struggling with the impacts of poverty and trauma. Gross draws on her experience as a college president to outline practical steps that post-secondary institutions can take to create structures and opportunity that build reciprocal trust.
