One Solution for Boosting Latino Graduation Rates
Delece Smith-Barrow, The Hechinger Report
The Council for Adult and Experiential Learning and Excelencia in Education are joining forces to increase the number of older, Latino student graduates.
Called the Adult Learner 360 Academy for HSIs, the three-year project will assist 15 Hispanic-serving institutions. The colleges will use a diagnostic tool from the council that collects feedback from students, faculty and staff, and identifies where schools can improve their resources for adult learners. The council also will provide professional development for the participants’ staff members, as well as research that the schools can consult as they change their learning environments.
