Gente Estudiada: Latina/o Students Confronting and Engaging Home/Community Knowledge Within/Outside Institutions of Higher Education

This project explores factors that enable Latina/o students – documented and undocumented – to persist in higher education and most importantly, to graduate and encourage other community members to also aspire to higher education. Institutions of higher education can gain valuable insights to improve Latina/o graduation rates by examining the complex ways in which Latina/o students contest and navigate the contradictory spaces of home, community, and school.
