Summary Latinos’ postsecondary educational attainment has not kept pace with their growing representation in the U.S. population. How can Latino educational attainment be advanced? This monograph reviews relevant contemporary research, focusing on the role of institutional contexts. Drawing particularly on reserach grounded in Latino students’ perspectives, we identify key challenges Latino students face and discuss various approaches to address these challenges. Because so many Latino students are enrolled in federally designated Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs), we also specifically explore HSIs’ role in promoting Latinos’ higher education access and equity. Finally, we offer our recommendations for institutional, state, and federal policies that can foster supportive contexts. -from back cover.
