On September 24, UnidosUS hosted a webinar, “Latino Students Speak About Their Higher Education Experience.”

While Latino students are entering college, they face financial and institutional barriers once they arrive which makes it difficult for them to remain enrolled. Our panelists during the webinar shared their personal stories of their college experience but also spoke about the obstacles that Latino students encounter when they go to college while examining the way these have been exacerbated during the COVID-19 pandemic.
