May 8, 2019 – Hispanic Serving Institutions & College Promise Program
The College Promise Campaign has released a landscape crosswalk of existing programs supporting Latino students. Of the 523 Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) across the nation, 172 of those institutions are currently participating in College Promise programs. The College Promise seeks to make higher education more accessible and affordable for students while also providing supports that increase likelihood of completion. While Latino students have made significant strides in college access and degree attainment at the state and national level over the past five years, considerable gaps remain in access, completion, and labor force participation. The College Promise Campaign recognizes the importance of addressing these gaps, and what it means for improving the social and economic outcomes of our nation’s Latino communities.
