While many higher education preparatory programs focus on grades, test scores, and financing, recent research in the field of youth development suggests that cultivating and fostering higher education aspiration may be a missing piece. Dr. Joanna Tzenis, UMN Extension educator, authored the guidebook Youth Aspirations: Imagining and Navigating Futures in Higher Education, to help young people envision having higher education in their future and begin to take steps toward achievement that include relying on supports, navigating barriers, and reimagining what is possible.
