College and Beyond

Achieving success in higher education

By 2025, nearly seven out of 10 jobs will require an associate’s or bachelor’s degree. Although more Latinos are enrolling in postsecondary institutions than even before, less than one in four have a bachelor’s degree.

We support initiatives focused on helping Latinos access, transition into, and complete higher education, with an emphasis on equity. At the state and federal levels, we call for policies that make higher education affordable, minimize student debt burdens, and hold academic institutions accountable for the increased retention and graduation of Latino students.
