Philip Oreopoulos

Professor of Economics, University of Toronto

Oreopolous will evaluate behavioral interventions designed to increase academic achievement among low-performing students at postsecondary institutions. He will synthesize results from four years of field experiments to identify which students struggle in college, what specific challenges they face, and whether technological aids such as online goal-setting exercises, text message reminders, or electronic calendars can generate meaningful and scalable programs to boost academic success.
