Hatch, D. K., Mardock Uman, N., & Garcia, C. E. (2016). Variation Within the “New Latino Diaspora” A Decade of Changes Across the United States in the Equitable Participation of Latina/os in Higher Education. Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, 15(4), 358-385.

This study problematizes the common discourse that rapid and widespread Latina/o demographic growth in the United States is a driving force in realizing higher education equity gains. Using equity indices for students, faculty, and administrative leaders at the state level, we present a portrait of changes in Latina/o participation in higher education over the last decade and propose a classification scheme for understanding variation across states at the intersection of changes in both demographics and equitable participation.
