As Hispanic students struggled more than any other race or ethnicity to stay enrolled in post-high school education and training programs in 2022, a recent Lumina Foundation-Gallup study shows they were also more likely to feel discriminated against, harassed, disrespected, and physically and psychologically unsafe at their institutions.
About one in four Hispanic students currently enrolled in a post-high school education or training program said they “frequently” or “occasionally” experience each of these negative feelings—a higher rate than for students of any other race or ethnicity. These higher rates are driven largely by the negative experiences Hispanic students have in short-term credential programs rather than associate or bachelor’s degree programs.
