When we launched THE HISPANIC OUTLOOK IN HIGHER EDUCATION Magazine 27 years ago, our goal was to create an information source by and for Hispanic educators that would demystify the entire higher education experience for Hispanic students and their families.
We understood then, as now, that Hispanics have faced unique daunting cultural obstacles, as well as a lack of actionable information that dampens chances of success in education.
As Hispanic Outlook grew to a full-color magazine available both in print and online, so did Hispanic numbers at colleges and universities across America. However, a closer look revealed that while Hispanics were enrolling in colleges, they weren't thriving. In fact, they were dropping out at alarming rates!
These statistics didn't escape our notice, and we began reaching out to schools across the country to learn directly from the higher education community why this was happening.
The answer soon became clear: keeping Hispanics in higher education requires preparation that starts long before an acceptance letter arrives in the mail. It starts in elementary, middle and high school. After all, today's high school graduates become tomorrow's college students.
That fact has served as the inspiration for Hispanic Outlook to continue to grow, and we are excited to announce that we are expanding our content, so we can cover even more of the education experience.
Of course, higher education will always be the cornerstone of our magazine, and we will continue to bring you, our readers, the content that you know and love including our top college lists and our writers' columns.
Now, however, you will also be able to find out about the latest news, trends and innovations impacting kindergarten through high school -- all while maintaining a unique Hispanic perspective.
For 27 years, we have always brought you the Hispanic outlook in higher education. Now, let us bring you that and more--THE HISPANIC OUTLOOK ON EDUCATION
