(CNN) - A report released Wednesday by Excelencia in Education revealed the top colleges graduating Latinos in the U.S.
The report titled “Finding Your Workforce: The Top 25 Institutions Graduating Latinos” included information on public, private and for profit and non-profit institutions graduating the most Latino students.
According to the report, Miami Dade College in Florida awards the most associate degrees to Latinos, while Florida International University, the University of Phoenix, and the University of Texas at El Paso each led in two or more academic levels (including associate, undergraduate graduate, and/or doctoral.)
Education Week has a write-up on the report and some of the trends it reveals, including the prominence of for-profit institutions as the top route for Latinos seeking certificates.
Excelencia in Education is a Washington D.C.-based organization advocating academic success for Latinos. According to the organization, Latinos will represent nearly a quarter of the college age population in 2025, but only 7% of Latinos ages 18-24 had an associate’s degree or higher in 2009.
