Although Institutions of Higher Education across the country are taking bold steps to accelerate Latino Student Success and Completion, they are now leveraging cross-sector partnerships to meet this goal. This session will focus on evidence-based strategies that work. The speaker will share how institutions can positively impact student success and completion through cross-sector collaboration and implementing a culture of evidence and assessment to positively impact Latino student success and ultimately increase the number of students completing degrees and credentials.
