Green and Wylie discuss the Keys to Degrees program at Endicott College, a campus-based program serving single parents and their young children. Students enrolled in the program have on-campus housing for their families, and their children are enrolled in high-quality child development programs or elementary schools. Green and Wylie review a decade of data, noting that 71 percent of Keys to Degrees students completed college in just four years. In comparison, the national rate for student parents who complete a degree or certificate program in six years is 40 percent. Alumni surveys showed that 100 percent of graduates were employed and 57 percent were earning an annual salary of $40,000 or more. Green and Wylie also explore challenges to replicating Keys to Degrees at other higher education institutions.
