findings from the Class of 2000.
The UW-BHS (University of Washington-Beyond High
School) project began in 1999 as a study of the
impact of I-200 (the referendum that ended
affirmative action) on minority enrollment in
higher education in Washington State. Following a
successful pilot survey in the spring of 2000, the
project eventually included baseline and one-year
follow-up surveys of almost 10,000 high school
seniors in five cohorts across several school
districts in the Pacific Northwest. The research
objectives of the project are to: 1) describe and
explain differences in the transition from high
school to college by race and ethnicity,
socioeconomic origins, and other characteristics,
2) evaluate of the impact of the Washington State Achievers
Program, and 3) explore the implications of
multiple race and ethnic identities.
