Just about every institution’s leadership is thinking about how to connect with students from a range of backgrounds. Community colleges are focusing on outreach and engagement so that students realize the opportunities ahead—and can overcome any obstacles in their way.

Erin Howard, Hispanic/Latino outreach director there, shares her perspective on admissions and outreach.
