Want social mobility? Go to a state university



Cal State Los Angeles and SUNY Stonybrook had the highest “mobility rate” in a new study by the Equality of Opportunity Project. The study of 30 million college students tracked the likelihood that a student from a lower-income family ends up in a higher-income family. Pace University in New York was the rare private school with a high mobility rate; the top Ivy League school on the mobility index, M.I.T., ranks 1,288 out of 2,137 colleges. One takeaway: Low-income students fare well at elite colleges, but there are too few of them enrolled to drive broader social mobility.
