The presentation will highlight the partnerships and how three Virginia wide organizations partnered together to connect Latinx high school students to independent colleges/universities, where they have typically been a minority. Participants attending this presentation will leave with increased knowledge regarding 1) Latinx student populations, 2) Creating a culturally sensitive college trip, and 3) Resources from the organizations. While the presenters will focus on Latinx student engagement, participants will be able to use some strategies for other minority students in their specific area and 4) learn about the process for determining eligibility for in-state tuition/domicile. While this process can be straightforward for many students, it can become complicated for those not residing with their parents or whose parents otherwise are not able to demonstrate domicile.
