We Are an Example of Excelencia!



The College Crusade was honored in October by Excelencia in Education with a 2018 Examples of Excelencia award. The award is presented to programs that have shown evidence-based results in improving Latino student success in higher education. As an award recipient, The College Crusade is now featured in Excelencia’s “Growing What Works Database.”

This year 139 programs from 27 states, D.C., and Puerto Rico were nominated for an award, and four were chosen. Excelencia in Education made the announcement at its annual Celebración de Excelencia event, held at the historic Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. The audience included higher education leaders, decision makers, and grant makers from across the country. Congressman David Cicilline was able to join us at the celebration for a photo!
