The Gateway Cities Project

The Gateway Cities Project is the short name given to the 4 year SSHRC insight grant entitlted "Widening Post-secondary Access Pathways of Marginalized Youth in Gateway Cities."The project includes five major urban centres in which the research team will examine the determinants of post-secondary pathways for high school students.The urban sites selected are based upon the characteristic of the city as being a "gateway city" for recent immigrants, and the availability of large-scale data on recent secondary students and their PSE participation. Marginalized student groups identified in the research literature include: those with special needs, underrepresented racial and ethnic minorities, recent immigrants and lower socioeconomic status groups. The gateway cities selected provide meaningful national and international comparisons of equity issues that relate to the student groups selected and provide us with the opportunity to examine their access to and participation in PSE.  The Gateway Cities Project is very much a continuation of a previous SSHRC ("Postsecondary Pathways Project") on which Paul Anisef was Principal Investigator.
