Educational Excellence and Equity: Educational Attainment for Latinos
The sixth annual Lynch School Symposium focuses on how best to support the educational progress of the Latino community—the largest growing demographic in the United States—and how to make breaking the cycle of Hispanic undereducation an item on the national agenda. The keynote speaker is Sara Martinez Tucker, president and CEO of the Hispanic Scholarship Fund, the nation's leading organization supporting Hispanic higher education. She sits on a U.S. Department of Education commission to develop a comprehensive national strategy on the future of higher education.
Two Lynch School faculty members, Maria Estela Brisk and Ana Martínez Alemán, respond to Tucker's remarks.
Welcoming remarks are given by Joseph O'Keefe, SJ, dean of the Lynch School of Education.
