Almost 60% of black and Latino students at four-year colleges and universities fail to earn diplomas. For black men, the figure is even worse–about 70% don’t graduate. But if it doesn’t have to be this way and a number of universities are proving it.
At the State University of New York at Stony Brook, a diverse institution with 16,000 undergraduates, 70% of black students and 65% of Latino students earn diplomas.
Stony Brook uses a carefully thought out approach to help low-income, mostly minority students reach the finish line and it could be a model for the rest of the nation.
