Latinos and Higher Ed (March 24, 2011)
Project MALES was featured on the Michael Eric Dyson Show! ”We’ve spent a lot of time discussing African-American males and higher education—now we turn to the situation with Latino males. Dr. Luis Ponjuán, assistant professor of higher education administration at the University of Florida, alerted academia to the crisis of higher education and Latino Males when he co-authored the study “The Vanishing Latino Male in Higher Education” in 2009. Now, in addition to his position at UF Gainsville, he’s also a partner with Project MALES—Mentoring to Achieve Latino Educational Success, an initiative with the University of Texas, Austin. He tells us more about the crisis facing Latinos and how programs like these can help.”
