Full Program Description:

Librarians who want to support the mission of their university must turn their attention to America’s fastest growing student population: Hispanics. Yet how much do you really know about these students? After participating in a two-year ethnographic study involving 600 participants, two presenters will demonstrate how to create an action plan that supports the academic success of Latino students. Learn how you can use qualitative and quantitative data to connect with Hispanics at your institution
