Hispanics in College

Hispanics are the youngest population group, one-in-four public elementary school students is Latino. Unfortunately, its demographic feat does not equal its education achievement. Nationally, Minnesota has the largest achievement gap for Latinos with only 51 percent of high school graduation rate, whereas 84 percent of whites graduated from high school. Consequently, a dreadful high school graduation rate is also reflected in the huge disparity college gap for young Hispanics. The percentage of Hispanics with bachelor’s degrees was just 13.2 percent in 2009 in contrast with 27.3 percent of the general population. Such a disproportionate education gap requires basic grassroots tactics and a cultural-know-how strategy.

Multivision Media Group has developed and proven a successful four-step plan that has helped colleges in Minnesota increase the number of Hispanics students enrolled at their institutions. Education has been a passion for the Multivision Media Group team, we have gone through the process and have identified the impediments that prevent young Hispanics to obtain a higher education degree. Secondly, we have created an antidote to overcome the “no college” perceptions that have been unconsciously instigated in young Hispanics. For instance, one perception deeply rooted in students it is the high cost of higher education. Multivision Media Group has created educational campaigns for students and mainly for parents to knock down that ill perception. We have used cost comparison tables so they can relate better to college cost and the benefits of a college educated person versus someone with no higher education. We have ensured in our campaigns that Hispanics see it as an investment rather than an expense. We have also raised funds for students as part of our public relations strategy on behalf of colleges.

The decline in college enrollment seems to be accelerating

The decline in college enrollment seems to be accelerating, though it was the steepest in the Midwest. According to experts, enrollment typically falls when the economy improves and unemployment drops. Despite a slow economic recovery and how predictable enrollment drops from an economic perspective, colleges still have to fill out classrooms to deal with increased costs or state support. Two- year colleges have seen the greatest decline; while four-year private colleges actually saw their enrollments slightly grow. What are private colleges doing differently to increase enrollment? Why aren’t most public universities and community colleges doing enough to reach out to Hispanics? After all, Hispanics are the fastest growing demographic group and due to economic and geographic reasons, Hispanics tend to choose community and technical colleges as their first choice.
