Midwest College Steps Up

Great to see Goshen College in Indiana launch a new research intiative aimed at studying academic success of Latinos in the Midwest.

The Institute for Latino Educational Achievement will be the research arm of the college’s Center for Intercultural Teaching & Learning. Research will focus on factors that affect the academic success of Latino students in higher education settings. Students, faculty and visiting research fellows will participate in the research.

As I make my transition to Wisconsin in the coming weeks, I’m excited to see a genuine interest in Latino educational attainment.
