Title: Examining Life Outcomes Among Graduates of Hispanic-Serving Institutions: 2018 HSIs and Workforce Survey

Author: Excelencia in Education and Gallup

Excelencia in Education recently released a new report, Examining Life Outcomes Among Graduates of Hispanic-Serving Institutions: 2018 HSIs and Workforce Survey, in partnership with Strada Education Network and Gallup.

The report analyzes interviews with 14,320 college graduates who received their degrees between 2000 and 2017 from 12 Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) participating in Excelencia’s Excelencia in Action (E-Action) network. Students were interviewed on a host of topics ranging from their college experience to workplace outcomes. The report compares the findings from this group with a sample of national college graduates as well as graduates from other HSIs collected via the national Gallup-Purdue Index study.
