A Latino Scorecard for Higher Education: A Focus on Texas Universities
Vega, Arturo; Martinez, Ruben
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v11 n1 p41-54 Jan 2012
A Latino scorecard is presented for higher education institutions using an index of eight measures for "resources", "effectiveness", "diversity", "equity", "affordability", and "access". It is applied to public 4-year institutions in Texas and shows that institutions located in South Texas and those with higher resources do better relative to Latino students. The scorecard can inform Latino parents on how institutions perform relative to Latinos and provide objective information on performance to colleges and universities to institutions. (Contains 2 tables and 3 notes.)
