PRESS RELEASE

Struggling to survive – striving to succeed: Food and housing insecurities in the community college. A new study finds that approximately one-third of community college students experience the threat of homelessness and housing instability and twelve percent face the threat of hunger. More than 70% of these students are in remedial math courses. “The findings are just common sense, if you are more concerned about where your next meal is or where you can lay your head at night than classroom success, it will impact your grades. That’s the collegiate experience for a significant portion of college students, much more than we anticipated.” said Dr. Luke Wood. “When faced with the real threat of hunger or homelessness their focus is survival before success.” These findings are among many new insights featured in a new report that is helping to create awareness of the challenges that many college students face during the holiday season and throughout the academic year. The report, Struggling to survive: Striving to succeed: Food and housing insecurities in the community college, released by the Community College Equity Assessment Lab (CCEAL) at San Diego State University is among the first research efforts to show who is adversely exposed to food and housing insecurities in California.
