Join the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE) for a discussion with Professor Armando Ibarra (Department of Labor Education, UW-Extension) about his applied research study of Latin@ families in seven counties across Wisconsin.
This event is cosponsored by the Latin American, Caribbean & Iberian Studies Program and the Chican@ and Latin@ Studies Program at UW-Madison.
Between 2015 and 2016, Dr. Ibarra and his team collected data through surveys, focus groups, and one-on-one interviews with Latin@ parents and key community stakeholders. The purpose was to better understand how Latin@ families are integrating into local communities and to assess their educational needs.
Dr. Ibarra will share findings and recommendations that resulted from the study, and discuss implications for higher education.
