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.

Cover-cropped-Latinos in Higher Education-Compilation of Fast Facts

Latinos are one of the largest and fastest growing racial/ethnic groups in postsecondary education. All involved in higher education need up-to-date and accurate information about Latino students to better inform policy and practice. In this compilation we provide a snapshot with a Latino lens of: affordability, institutional capacity, Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs), retention and transfer, workforce preparation, and more.

Why focus on Latino student success?

Policy must keep up with our country’s changing demographics to serve students, especially with Latinos’ fast growth rate. 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.
