The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence has selected the UIW Graduate Support Center as a Bright Spot in Hispanic Education for Hispanics. Alejandra Ceja, executive director, made the announcement on Tuesday, Sept. 15, at the launch of Hispanic Heritage Month and in honor of the Initiative’s 25th anniversary in Washington, D.C. As a Bright Spot, UIW’s Graduate Support Center, will be part of a national online catalog (www.ed.gov/hispanicinitiative) that includes over 230 programs that invest in key education priorities for Hispanics. The Initiative seeks to leverage these Bright Spots to encourage collaboration between stakeholders focused on similar issues in sharing data-driven approaches, promising practices, peer advice, and effective partnerships, ultimately resulting in increased support for the educational attainment of the Hispanic community, from cradle-to-career.
