Document Number: 5512Latino Student Success at Hispanic-Serving Institutions - Latino students are one of the fastest growing groups enrolling in postsecondary education today and nearly half of them are enrolled at Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs). This policy brief summarizes what is known about Latino student achievement and suggests further areas of research. Six HSIs participated in a 12-month research study that compared institutional practices with student outcomes. Promising practices include: using disaggregated student data to identify areas of need, partnering with K-12 and community colleges to increase Latino participation, and encouraging strong leadership that is committed to the success of Latino students.
