Postsecondary Education and the Hispanic Student.
Baca, Orlando G., Ed.
This publication is based on a conference series designed to foster interinstitutional cooperation to provide equality of educational opportunity for the culturally and linguistically different Hispanic student. A wide gap exists between levels of educational attainment for the total population and those for the Spanish speaking. The conference series began with a discussion of the problems faced by the culturally and linguistically different student. Thirty-seven recommendations are offered for equalizing educational opportunity, and problems are listed which project participants rank as being the 10 most significant among those discussed. Program goals were to establish cooperative efforts with local community participation relevant to the educational needs of the Spanish-speaking student, to inventory current research specific to institutional service areas, to generate additional data needed for problem solving and program planning, and to publish and distribute research findings and recommendations. Listings are provided of guest speakers of the conferences and the title of presentations, selected programs of community organizations and colleges and universities, and resource people. (SW)
