InterAction: Higher Education and Latinos in the New Millennium

A group of leaders from across Texas unveiled policy reform solutions to the disparities in higher education access and success for Latino students. The leaders include K-12 educators, and college and university leaders, community and business advocates, and policymakers.

Supported by Houston Endowment, Inc., IDRA lead the initiative, titled InterAction: Higher Education and Latinos in the New Millennium, which seeks to build stronger, enduring links among K-12, institutions of higher education and the community and business sectors to effect meaningful education reform.

The 31 policy solutions follow IDRA’s framework that identifies seven distinct areas of opportunities for reform: preparation, access, institutional persistence, affordability, institutional resources, graduation, and graduate/professional studies.
