How Can Colleges Attract More Minority Students? Hire More Minority Professors, Say College Deans

There are many ways to attract Hispanic students to pursue and complete college and university studies. Probably one of the most important, yet overlooked, ways to generate enthusiasm and interest in higher education is to create a sense of belonging and comfort for students with different cultural backgrounds and language skills.

For institutions seeking to increase their number of minority students, a multicultural staff could hold the key to building a more diverse student body.

THE HISPANIC VOTE: Comprehensive Immigration Reform and the 2016 Presidential Race

The political importance of securing an ethnic voting bloc has played and will continue to play an important role in our political electoral history. Very few Americans understand the current Hispanic-changing demographic trends, its implications, political importance and their electoral votes. This vote not only became a political weapon in 2012, but in 2016, the Hispanic vote will dictate who will become the future leader of the free world. The 2016 Presidential election has slowly but surely developed into a debate on the politics of immigration reform and the courting of Hispanic electoral votes. Never in American electoral history has an ethnic group become such an important part of the American electoral process that the future American president will be determined by its electorate. Despite this importance, central to the debates is comprehensive immigration reform, the politics of race and the political impact of the new Americans or those we often refer to as undocumented immigrants.

Giving Undocumented Students Safe Harbor On Campus

Fear can overtake undocumented college students faced with the daunting tasks of applying for admission or financial aid. Not wanting to make waves, they don’t know where to go for help without putting themselves or their families at risk. At the same time, university staff might not know how to help those who are undocumented because they are not aware of resources. Referring them to other departments makes students feel they are getting the run-around. After so many referrals and no definitive guidance, they can give up. Between needs and reality, undocumented students can fall through the cracks of the higher education system.
