Past Projects

College Access & Success Mapping Project (August 2015-August 2016)

Graduate NYC!, a CUNY/ NYC Department of Education initiative to increase college readiness and success of students in the New York City area, launched the NYC College Access & Success Mapping Project in theCUNY fall of 2016. This project enabled stakeholders to search an interactive website of services available in the NYC college access and success community. Hezel Associates and subcontracted partner, Carson Research Consulting (CRC), collected data from providers of such services, and developed a searchable web data system, which will include mapping as a data output feature.

Hezel Associates developed and administered an online questionnaire to obtain data for the web-based system. CRC used these data to design and build a database, organizing opportunities by region and other factors of interest to stakeholders. They  also built the user interface to facilitate visualization of the data. The final deliverable enabled Graduate NYC! to release a comprehensive, searchable directory of services, to support student college readiness, matriculation, and degree attainment. This gives policy makers and practitioners the ability to look at, analyze, and/or assess the data in the aggregate, in addition to looking at it in an individual, searchable fashion. The aggregated information enables policy makers, funders, and others to make better and more informed decisions/recommendations for the future of college access and success in New York City.
