A Look at Latino Student Success: Identifying Top- and Bottom-Performing Institutions
MetadataShow full item record
As the Latino population in this nation has increased over the past few decades, there has been a dramatic surge in the numbers of Latino students pursuing postsecondary credentials and degrees on college and university campuses across the country. During this same period, the gap between Latino and White students enrolling in college after high school has steadily declined and is now only a few percentage points. This is especially the case at community colleges. While these gains are important to acknowledge and celebrate, it is also fair to point out that progress has been far too slow, and a 10 percentage point gap still remains between the graduation rate of Latino students and their White peers.
