Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) Hispanic Higher Education Research Collective (H3ERC) Research Agenda: Impacting Education and Changing Lives through Understanding
Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities
With support from the Lumina Foundation, the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) has launched HACU's Hispanic Higher Education Research Collective (H3ERC). The first major task of this virtual gathering of researchers and practitioners in Hispanic higher education has been to assess the state of our knowledge of the key issues and develop a research agenda for the present and near future. The aim is not just to produce a document but also to stimulate discussion among researchers and practitioners about current and past research, ideas, directions, issues, and priorities regarding Hispanics and education. The goal of the discussion and the agenda itself is to provide a basis to evaluate, inform, and improve practice and policy impacting Hispanics and education. It is the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities' (HACU's) intention to share this document with the participants in the Collective for updating and further refinement. It is hoped it will also be a work in progress in the sense that key research issues today will be addressed tomorrow and no longer need to be part of the "to-do" list. It is hoped it will not only be a guide for researchers but also lead to the changes in policy and practice and to closing the educational achievement gaps. Participants in the Agenda Setting Conferences. (Contains 28 footnotes.)
