AU President Dr. Carlos Campo was interviewed on the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) News as part of an article titled "Christian Colleges Reach Out to Recruit Hispanic Students." Dr. Campo is also founder of the NHCLC's Faith and Education Coalition.
In this interview, Dr. Campo says Hispanic students face financial obstacles, which often get in the way of college graduation. They also often struggle with the need for remedial course work in college that sets them back both academically and financially.
The good news, he noted, is that Hispanics value education. Learning Heroes reports that 90 percent of Hispanic parents want their children to go to college, a higher percentage than any other ethnic group measured.
