2019 What Works for Latino Students in Higher Education

Describes the only national effort to recognize evidence-based practices that accelerate Latino student success in higher education. The resource recognizes programs that are intentionally serving Latino students across four levels: Associate, Baccalaureate, Graduate, and Community-Based Organizations. Over 14 years, Excelencia has recognized over 300 programs across the country that work for Latino students. This year’s compendium includes 4 Examples of Excelencia, 12 finalists and 20 Programs to Watch. The programs in this compendium are responsive to the strengths and opportunities their students face in preparing for, persisting in, and completing a college education.
