Where do Latinos go to college?

Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI)

The institutions serving students with the highest need are also some of the most under-resourced. We must acknowledge and support these institutions—community colleges, open access, and public institutions. Latinos are heavily concentrated at these institutions and ensuring Latino student success requires financial resources for wraparound services or increased financial aid. Policy should focus on increasing institutional capacity to improve access and completion of Latino students in higher education.
