According to the Hispanic Equity Report at UT Austin, Latino employees and students experience vast inequalities around student enrollments, disparities in employee compensation, the lack of diversity in positions of leadership, and more. This webinar sparks the discussion to formulate a strategy to address Latina/o Equity in higher education as a partnership with LULAC, the Texas Center for Education Policy (TCEP) at The University of Texas at Austin, and local organizations, including the National Latina/o Education Research and Policy Project (NLERAPP). The Independent Equity Committee at the University of Texas at Austin has proposed to extend the Latina/o equity initiative to other colleges and universities in Texas and California. Together, our aim is to build a national campaign and develop a plan of action for equity assessment policies in higher education.
