Excelencia in Education’s mission is to accelerate Latino student success in higher education, thereby expanding our country’s human capital and leadership. Linking research, policy and practice, Excelencia in Education promotes institutional practices and educational policies that support Latino student achievement. Our guiding theory of action is as follows: The nation can make a measurable difference in increasing Latino student success in higher education by building a social movement that is informing decision makers, showing them what can be done, and holding them accountable; by working within institutions and organizations within sectors to provide assistance and compel action; and by creating a supportive community of action-oriented advocates.
Of the many ways to get involved in our work, you should consider:
  • having your institution or organization join Excelencia in Action
  • nominate programs for the annual Examples of Excelencia
  • use the information provided for the Ensuring America’s Future
