INDIANA LATINO EDUCATION SUMMIT

In 2019, the Indiana Latino Institute hosted its 8th Annual Indiana Latino Education Summit that, for the first time, was comprised of two separate summits!  The Education Summit – South Bend was held at the Century Center and hosted over 1,000 Latino high school students from Northern Indiana and the Education Summit – Indianapolis was held at the JW Marriott and hosted over 1,800 Latino high school students from Central and Southern Indiana.  Both events provided valuable information on getting to and through college. Students attended workshops such as: How to Choose a College that Best Fits Your Needs, Financial Aid 101, and What You Need to Know About the Transition to College. Additionally students had the opportunity to experience over Indiana Higher Education institutions and businesses during the College & Career Fair (over 30 in South Bend and over 70 in Indianapolis). With access to resources via panels, round-table discussions, and leadership development sessions, students were given the tools to excel at attaining post-secondary achievements.
