Michigan Hispanic Collaborative
We are dedicated to supporting Hispanic students and families to and through college!
Statistics show that nationally, only 67.1% of Hispanics finish high school and only 15.7% graduate from college with 4-year degrees. In Detroit, the rates are 30.3% and 6.1% respectively. MiHC launched La Próxima Generación (Próx Gen), a program focused on supporting the Hispanic youth as they navigate from high school to college, and onto careers. The MiHC team works to raise awareness, build capacity to weave a coordinated eco-system, formalize partnerships, collaborate and leverage existing efforts, and create culturally relevant solutions and program interventions that support Hispanic student persistence rates.
Over the last 40 years, Hispanic academic achievement has not improved significantly. The crisis is not only affecting the Hispanic community but the state and national economy.
