Latinos’ postsecondary educational attainment has not kept pace with their growing representation in the U.S. population. How can Latino educational attainment be advanced? This monograph presents relevant contemporary research, focusing on the role of institutional contexts. Drawing particularly on research grounded in Latino students’ perspectives, it identifies key challenges Latino students face and discuss various approaches to address these challenges. Because so many Latino students are enrolled in federally designated Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs), it also specifically explores HSIs’ role in promoting Latinos’ higher education access and equity. As a conclusion, it offers recommendations for institutional, state, and federal policies that can foster supportive contexts. This is Volume 39 Issue 1 of the Jossey-Bass publication ASHE Higher Education Report. Each monograph in the series is the definitive analysis of a tough higher education problem, based on thorough research of pertinent literature and institutional experiences. Topics are identified by a national survey. Noted practitioners and scholars are then commissioned to write the reports, with experts providing critical reviews of each manuscript before publication.

Spotlighting the challenges and realities faced by linguistically diverse immigrant and resident students in U.S. secondary schools and in their transitions from high school to community colleges and universities, this book looks at programs, interventions, and other factors that help or hinder them as they make this move. Chapters from teachers and scholars working in a variety of contexts build rich understandings of how high school literacy contexts, policies such as the proposed DREAM Act and the Common Core State Standards, bridge programs like Upward Bound, and curricula redesign in first-year college composition courses designed to recognize increasing linguistic diversity of student populations, affect the success of this growing population of students as they move from high school into higher education.

Creating the conditions that foster student success in college has never been more important. As many as four-fifths of high school graduates need some form of postsecondary education to be economically self-sufficient and manage the increasingly complex social, political, and cultural issues of the 21st century. But about 40 percent of those who start college fail to earn a degree within 6 or 8 years, an unacceptably low number. This report examines the complicated array of social, economic, cultural and educational factors related to student success in college, defined as academic achievement, engagement in educationally purposeful activities, satisfaction, acquisition of desired knowledge, skills and competencies, persistence, and attainment of educational objectives. Although the trajectory for academic success in college is established long before students matriculate, most institutions can do more than they are at present to shape how students prepared for college and they they engage in productive activities after they arrive. This is the 5th issue of the 32nd volume of the Jossey-Bass series ASHE Higher Education Report. Each monograph is the definitive analysis of a tough higher education problem, based on thorough research of pertinent literature and institutional experiences. Topics are identified by a national survey. Noted practitioners and scholars are then commissioned to write the reports, with experts providing critical reviews of each manuscript before publication.

Στις μέρες μας, το κουτσομπολιό και κυρίως η συκοφαντία έχουν ξεπεράσει κάθε όριο νομιμότητας. Παράλληλα, όμως, έχει επεκταθεί και το αντίθετο: Να μην μπορείς να μιλήσεις ελεύθερα για κάτι που, κατά την αντικειμενική – όπως πιστεύεις – γνώμη σου είναι παράλογο, αντικανονικό και ανήθικο. Οπότε αντιμετωπίζεις το δίλημμα: Να εκφράσεις την άποψή σου, ή να σιωπήσεις κι έτσι να έχεις ήσυχο το κεφάλι σου απ’ τον υπαρκτό φόβο μπας και το χάσεις. Και αυτοφιμώνεσαι ή τολμάς να μιλήσεις και δέχεσαι είτε την πυγμή του νόμου ή, προπάντων της παρανομίας. Αυτό είναι το μήνυμα που προσπαθώ να δώσω στα εφτά διηγήματά μου στο «Φίμωτρο»: Να λες, δηλαδή, την αλήθεια, έστω κι αν η αλήθεια συνήθως αντιμετωπίζεται κι εχθρικά και βίαια από τους ένοχους δέκτες της.
