Expanding Knowledge About Latino Students in Higher Education
Excelencia in Education was founded with the belief that increasing knowledge about the current condition of Latino educational achievement, combined with data-driven research and analysis of what is working to increase Latino student success will strengthen public policy and institutional practices to further accelerate success for post-traditional students.
At the undergraduate level, the top 25 institutions conferring certificates or degrees to Latinos in STEM in 2012-13 were located in a small number of states - Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, Texas - and Puerto Rico
