Chair Overview

Dr. Karen Robson works together with the Toronto District School Board to look at issues around the transition of high school students to postsecondary education in Ontario. She leads a large research team, which includes members in Chicago, New York City, London, Vancouver, and Toronto. With a strong commitment to longitudinal and comparative research, Dr. Robson examines the educational pathways of young people in major cities around the world, using policy contexts to understand major differences in where young people end up after high school.
