Instead of settling for lower success rates, they are taking responsibility for helping more Latino students graduate. “Advancing to Completion,” a new study from The Education Trust, shows that institutions across the country are producing stronger outcomes for Latinos. The report outlines strategies used by the colleges making great strides in improving their outcomes for Latino students.
