Excelencia in Education Releases New Research Highlighting the Institutions Producing Latino Graduates in Health Care Fields
Excelencia in Education last week unveiled a new analysis of the top 25 institutions graduating Latinos in health professions and related programs, along with examples of promising institutional practices. Titled Finding Your Workforce: The Top 25 Institutions Graduating Latinos in Health Professions and Related Programs by Academic Level, this analysis is part of a project to inform recruiters and employers of institutions graduating Latinos in key sectors and encourage them to do more to engage Latinos in their workforce.
"One-third of the projected fastest-growing occupations are related to health care, and Latinos are projected to account for threequarters of the growth in America's workforce by 2020," said Sarita Brown, president of Excelencia in Education. "Excelencia in Education is providing practical information for health care industry leaders to make the direct connection between Latino college completion and America's future workforce."
