Education in the 21st Century: Building a Common Destiny
This event features Dr. Luis Fraga from the University of Washington, who will discuss the changing nature of higher education and the implications of this shift with regards to access to education for Hispanic and Latino students. Admission is Free.
In the past few years, the growing difficulties in education affordability and access have particularly affected minority students. Dr. Fraga will discuss the future of higher education in the context of the Dream Act, retention and graduation needs, as well as in terms of measuring performance across institutions and demographics. We will also discuss the effectiveness of higher education, as the changing demographics of college graduates result in changes in the labor market. He will then participate in a discussion, followed by a Q&A session.
Dr. Luis Fraga is the Associate Vice Provost for faculty advancement at the University of Washington. His focus in research and teaching is Latino politics, politics of race and ethnicity, immigration politics, education politics, and voting rights policy. His contributions have been published over 40 times in journals and edited volumes, and he has authored and co-authored multiple books on these subjects.
