Student Success

If we open the doors to college education to all that wish to achieve it, we produce a new generation of Americans proud of their destiny. Highly educated citizens, once vested in our country's democracy, will nurture it, protect it, defend it, develop and evolve it, and then they will sustain it.

Achieving the nation’s educational attainment goals and ensuring our nation’s prosperity is impossible without significant improvements in the acceleration of postsecondary completion of Latino students.
