Examples of Excelencia
What is Examples of Excelencia?
Examples of Excelencia is the only national effort to identify and promote evidence-based practices that help accelerate Latino student success in higher education. Through a year-long process, we identify, review, and promote programs at colleges and universities as well as community-based organizations. Excelencia has received over 1,600 program nominations located in 33 states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico and recognized over 280 programs since 2005.
Growing What Works Database
Excelencia cares about finding replicable programs with evidence-based outcomes that work.
Programs recognized through Examples of Excelencia feed into our Growing What Works database. The Growing What Works database is an online searchable database that serves as a resource for institutional leaders, funders, policymakers and others interested in evidence-base practices that help accelerate Latino student success in higher education. The database is made up of programs that were once recognized as through our Examples of Excelencia review process because of their strong Examples of Excelencia profile submission.
