Lifting Up Men of Color in Higher Ed

Episode 02

​​​​​​​​​​Multiple barriers stand between African American and Latino men and college completion. It’s a complex problem that secondary and postsecondary institutions, educators, and policymakers alike have been trying to address, yet finding ways to apply research to practice requires a community-wide effort.

In this episode, Victor Saenz talks about his work as part of the Project MALES (Mentoring to Achieve Latino Educational Success) Student Fellows Mentoring Program at the University of Texas at Austin, a research and mentoring project focused on learning about and supporting Latino men in the Central Texas community
