Hispanic Access and Success
Institutions of higher education are facing a challenging situation with rapid socio-demographic changes in the Hispanic population. This brief explores the progress made by the academic campuses of The University of Texas System (compared to other institutions of higher education in Texas) over the last decade to improve access, affordability, and outcomes for Hispanics including the UT System’s contribution to Closing the Gaps: The Texas Higher Education Plan in Hispanic student enrollment and degree production targets.
Note: Beginning in 2010 there were changes to the race/ethnicity reporting categories that will make longitudinal comparisons more difficult. For this reason, this paper will focus on progress made through 2009.
