The release of “Latinos in Higher Education: Compilation of Fast Facts” continues our commitment to provide baseline information on Latinos’ educational progress. This compilation of one-pagers serves as a reference tool to better understand the Latino college students today and can inform data-driven discussions about improving Latino educational achievement. This compilation begins with an overview of Latino college students followed by Latinos in higher education along the following four issue areas: 1) affordability, 2) institutional capacity, 3) retention, transfer, and completion, and, 4) workforce.
