As Latinos become the fastest growing minority in the United States, there is a corresponding increase in Hispanic enrollment at institutions of higher education.  With limited enrollment space at many public colleges and universities, there is a growing trend in Latino student enrollment at for-profit schools.  While for-profit institutions are capable of serving the increasingly diverse population, educational outcomes of Hispanic students enrolling at four-year, for-profit institutions remain stagnantly low.

Join CHCI Higher Education Graduate Fellow Enrique Soto as he leads a discussion on how for-profit institutions affect Latino higher education enrollment and completion. 

Opening Remarks: Congressman Ruben Hinojosa (TX-15)

Panelists:  

  • Jose Cruz - Vice President for Higher Education Policy and Practice
  • Eduardo Ochoa - Assistant Secretary for Postsecondary Education, U.S. Department of Education
  • Marcela Iglesias - Campus Director, DeVry University
  • Beth Stein - Oversight and Investigations Counsel and Policy Director, U.S. Senate HELP Committee
