The Status of Equity for Hispanics in Public Higher Education in Florida and Texas
Perna, Laura W.; Li, Chunyan; Walsh, Erin; Raible, Stephanie
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v9 n2 p145-166 2010
This article uses descriptive analyses of data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System to examine the status of equity for Hispanic students in public higher education institutions in Florida and Texas. The analyses show substantial inequities for Hispanics in enrollment, full-time faculty, and executive, administrative, and managerial staff. In both Texas and Florida, the greatest gaps in equity for Hispanics occur for full-time faculty and at the public flagship institutions. (Contains 6 tables and 1 note.)
