Examples of Excelencia is the only national effort to identify and promote evidence-based programs that help accelerate Latino student success in higher education. Through a comprehensive year-long process, Excelencia in Education recruits, reviews, and promotes evidence-based practices at the associate, baccalaureate, and graduate categories in institutions of higher education as well as practices at community-based organizations. Since 2005, Excelencia has received over 1,600 nominations from 33 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington, D.C. and recognized over 280 programs.

If you know of a program that accelerates Latino student success in higher education please nominate them for this year's Examples of Excelencia! If your program was nominated, or you believe your program should be recognized for its efforts to serve Latino students, review our How To Guide and submit a profile for consideration.
