Opportunity Matters is an open-access academic and creative journal where scholars, practitioners, students, parents, and community leaders involved with educational opportunity programs can share their research, reports, ideas, and creative works.
The upcoming volume of Opportunity Matters will showcase empirical research and narrative that address issues related to access, opportunity, and equity for first-generation, low-income, and students with disabilities. We are interested in work that considers critical inquiries, frameworks, and methods exploring intersectionality and the intersection of various identities within the core populations we highlight. We invite authors to focus on real-time practices and barriers, providing valuable insights for practitioners, policymakers, and educational leaders to reimagine educational spaces. Manuscripts should propose actionable recommendations for advancing equity in higher education. To explore previous journal volumes, please visit the Pell Institute's website.
