For over 10 years, Examples of Excelencia has been the only national effort to recognize programs with evidence-based practices that increase Latino student success in higher education. Programs are recognized in four categories: associate, baccalaureate, graduate, and community-based organizations (CBOs). Programs recognized through Examples of Excelencia are disseminated to others interested in serving Latino students and included in our Growing What Works Database and our 2016 What Works for Latino Students Compendium.
