LATIDO Policy Brief

May 2018

In December 2017 the Crimsonbridge Foundation partnered with MDRC, a nonprofit, nonpartisan, education and social policy research organization, to launch the Latino Academic Transfer and Institutional Degree Opportunities (LATIDO) Project. The goal of the LATIDO Project is to examine approaches to increasing the transfer and college completion rate of Latino students attending Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs). Supported by the Crimsonbridge Foundation, The College Futures Foundation, and The James Irvine Foundation, among others, nearly 30 experts in postsecondary education of Latino students, including Selma Caal from the Crimsonbridge Foundation, attended an expert roundtable in December 2017. Released in April 2018, the LATIDO Policy Brief highlights key findings from the roundtable about promising institutional policies and approaches currently being implemented at Hispanic Serving Institutions to support Latino students. The hope is to provide insights to those seeking to improve the postsecondary educational outcomes of Latinos.
