The Access, Retention and Completion (ARC) Institute for Latino Students was a great success and we appreciate the commitment made by all attendees to this initiative!

Institutions selected to receive a mini-grant will work with Excelencia in Education staff and other technical assistance providers to implement effective institutional strategies and practices addressing one of the following three areas:  Access, Retention and Completion.
