Representation Matters: Addressing the Latinx Leadership Crisis in Higher Education by Dr. Michelle Espino
Latinos represent 18.1% of the U.S. population and continue to have high school dropout rates higher than other racial/ethnic groups and college completions rates for traditionally and historically underrepresented groups that are lower than non-URM Latino groups. We hope to convene faculty, graduate students, higher education policy experts and community representatives to engage in a conversation about issues of equity and inclusion in higher education. A guiding premise of the conversation is that we all have a stake in the success, mobility and advancement of Latinos in higher education leadership.
