Keim, Parks Quoted in BDN Article on College Gender Gap

The Bangor Daily News spoke with Karen Keim, associate director of the Maine Educational Opportunity Center at the University of Maine, and Alan Parks, director of College Success Programs at UMaine, for an article about females outnumbering males on U.S. college campuses. Keim spoke about the importance of education during the middle school years and said attendance during that time is a “huge predictor of high school graduation and college-going.” Parks said men are less likely to enroll in college after working for a few years.
