Hispanics comprise the fastest growing population in the U.S., and Spanish-speaking students are enrolling in college in higher numbers. According to U.S. Census figures, between 2000 and 2009, the percentage of students enrolling in college who were Hispanic rose from 9.5 to 12.5 percent. TG provides a suite of resources designed to encourage potential Hispanic college students and to ease their path to a higher education. Consider adding these tools and services to your store of Spanish-language resources for students.
TG's Adventures In Education website supplies middle- and high-school students information in Spanish about all aspects of choosing a career and obtaining a higher education.
TG Online's Spanish Resources page itemizes links to an assortment of websites and college planning services. The Web page also promotes uniform language usage and provides access to Spanish-language public information materials.
A large portion of TG's college access brochures, postcards, and pamphlets are produced in English and Spanish to help you reach a broader audience of students. One such publication, College: The Next Step, offers a practical guide for students who will be the first in their family to attend college; another, Your Future, explores ways that high school students can prepare for college.
A great tool for bridging the language barrier is the English-Spanish Glossary. The glossary, which contains translations of standard terms relating to higher education, is designed to promote greater consistency in the vocabulary used in Spanish-language materials about higher education.
