Drawing attention to the institutions graduating Latinos in postsecondary education links the college completion goals of the U.S. with the workforce needs of the country. This third brief in the Finding Your Workforce series provides a summary of the top 25 institutions at each academic level graduating Latinos from certificates to doctoral degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) for 2009-10. These lists do not provide information on quality or institutional productivity of the institutions. Additional research on the quality of education or productivity of institutions where Latino students are earning degrees is essential and beyond the scope of this brief. Key findings include: (1) Latinos earned a small percentage of certificates/degrees conferred in STEM; (2) A small number of institutions graduated a high percentage of Latinos in STEM; (3) Latino degree attainment in STEM is concentrated geographically; (4) Latino degree attainment in STEM is concentrated at the bachelor level; and (5) Latinos working in STEM are concentrated in lower paying jobs. CIP Codes for STEM disciplines are appended. (Contains 3 tables and 7 endnotes.)
