Research by Susan M. Dynarski was cited in a Center for American Progress article called, "Race and Beyond: Income Differences Divide the College Campus in America."

Sam Fulwood III, the article's author, used Dynarski's research on the growing gap in college completion rates between high- and low-income families as example of class-based differences on U.S. college campuses.

"Even as college campuses herald their efforts to lower racial barriers—especially at the most elite, predominantly white colleges—some observers note that economic disparities among college students is creating a situation where affluent students have one experience and poor students have an entirely different one," wrote Fulwood.
