Meeting the increasing challenges of a global economy requires all in the U.S. are well educated, especially the growing Latino population. Now, more than ever, it is necessary to build momentum to capture the talents of Latino students and enhance their transitions into a highly skilled workforce and into leadership roles in the U.S. society. Educators and policymakers are looking to invest in strategies that show evidence of effectiveness.
The What Works section of the website identifies, celebrates, informs, and aggregates effective programs that work for Latinos and other students. Institutional practices that serve these populations well can guide the evolution to a more equitable higher education that serves current and future post-traditional students well.
Excelencia in Education concurrently works with leaders in selected communities and organizations across the country ready to engage and better serve the Latino community for our common goals of a more educated citizenry, leadership, and workforce.
