Manuel González Canché

Associate Professor


Higher Education Division

College access and affordability; pathways for underrepresented minorities; community colleges.

Manuel González Canché brings an innovative set of tools — including econometric, geospatial, and network analysis methods — to study the structural factors that influence minority and at-risk students' likelihood of success, including less access to financial, academic, and social resources. He aims to identify plans of action capable of closing these social and economic gaps. His work has already challenged traditional ideas about access, persistence, and success in higher education, and has led to a better understanding of the effect of location, influence, and competition.
