Labor Market Returns for Graduates of Hispanic-Serving Institutions
Park, Toby J.; Flores, Stella M.; Ryan, Christopher J., Jr.
Research in Higher Education, v59 n1 p29-53 Feb 2018
Latinos have become the largest minority group in American postsecondary education, a majority of whom attend two- or four-year Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs). However, little is known about labor market outcomes as result of attending these institutions. Using a unique student-level administrative database in Texas, and accounting for college selectivity, we examine whether attending an HSI influences labor market outcomes ten years after high school graduation for Latino students in Texas. We find no difference in the earnings of Hispanic graduates from HSIs and non-HSIs. This analysis represents one of the first to examine the labor market outcomes for Latino students in this sector of education accounting for critical factors that include a student's high school and community context.
