Increasing Participation in the Geosciences at El Paso Community College part of Integrate:Workshops and Webinars:Broadening Access to the Earth and Environmental Sciences:Essays
Community Colleges currently serve 44% of all undergraduate students and 45% of all of all first time freshmen in the US. The combined low cost and flexibility of community colleges has also meant that they accommodate a large percentage of minorities entering higher education. Hispanics now constitute 15% of the general population and 19% of college population in the US. This increase has led to more Institutions being designated HSI (Hispanic Serving Institutions) by the federal government, where at least 25 percent of the full-time-equivalent students are Latino.
