Grants and Contracts Details


This research team will investigate the impact of traumatic events, such as Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and adult victimization, on academic success in higher education. While previous research has looked at the impact of individual negative childhood or adult experiences such as abuse, neglect, and household dysfunction, on student success, no research to date has looked at the combined impact of ACEs and violence victimization on educational outcomes. This study will utilize survey data from two different large random samples of undergraduate students at the University of Kentucky (a longitudinal study in 2010-2013 and a cross-sectional sample in 2015; approximately 10,000 students total) collected by this research team that assessed victimization including ACEs, sexual and physical assault, intimate partner violence, and stalking. The proposed study will link this survey data to university data on student success outcomes, specifically undergraduate grade point average, retention, and four- and six-year graduation rates. Recognizing that getting accepted to college can be a difficult achievement, we hope to ensure that all students who begin college will be able to be successful and graduate. The goal is to better understand the relationship between traumatic events and student success to better inform and enhance student support services.
