In this new report, Getting In, Staying In: Community Perspectives on the Barriers to Latino Postsecondary Education, the authors solicited input from experts and students to provide a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges unique to the Latino experience in higher education. The authentic voice that emerged from this session provides a crucial context for the current higher education debate by highlighting the barriers that students face en route to a college degree. Access, preparation, affordability, debt, the quality of institutional supports, and completion are issues that most students and their families will have to negotiate during the collegiate experience. How the higher education system addresses these challenges today will determine Latino students’ long-term success.
