Abstract or Summary
  • A historical overview of Latino enrollment in the community college is presented. Thirty Latino occupational, transfer, and non-credit students attending an Oregon college were interviewed, examining educational and familial background, and college services as indicators of their decision to pursue postsecondary studies at the two-year institution. Results are analyzed, supplemented by information from local agencies and institutional data. Findings indicate Latinos are drawn to community colleges because of convenience, accessibility, affordability, and variety of programs offered. Recommendations based on information gathered are provided to assist community college leaders striving to better serve this population.
