Building Trust with Latinx Students

A Conversation with College Greenlight Counselors

With college enrollment declining across the board, a greater number of schools are focusing their attention on growing student populations—including Latinx students. EAB’s recent roundtable gave undergraduate enrollment leaders the chance to learn more about this student population and how to better serve them through the college admissions process.

50% of America’s Latinx college students enroll in HSIs despite HSIs making up only 18% of all colleges and universities.

In the videos below, you’ll hear from college access and high school counselors on how schools will need to evolve to successfully serve and attract Latinx students and their families. As an added bonus, we’ve included four impactful lessons from one partners’ journey to diversify their enrollments.
