It Made the Sacrifices Worth It: The Latino Experience in Higher Education

Provides context to existing data regarding higher education and its impact on the finances and wealth-building abilities of Latinos and their families. UnidosUS partnered with the UNC Center for Community Capital to conduct 30 in-depth interviews across six different cities. Specifically, UnidosUS was interested in answering questions such as: What is the experience of Latino students who apply for and attend postsecondary institutions?; What barriers to financing and completing a degree are faced by Latinos?; What impact does paying for higher education and student loan debt have on their current and longer-term financial lives?
