With support from the Ford Foundation, Excelencia in Education conducted data analysis and preliminary policy audits in three key states--California, Colorado and Texas-- to consider existing state policies most obviously connected to equity and Latino college completion. The result is a high-level review of state policies that may be helping, hindering, or warranting reconsideration to improve Latino student success in higher education. The brief profiles Latino and other post-traditional students in the three states, expands the consideration of public policy from national to state governance levels, and links to Excelencia in Education’s national initiative, Ensuring America's Future by Increasing Latino College Completion.
