The paper provides a review of literature that details successful practices for the improvement of the educational attainment of Hispanic students in the community college environment. The paper seeks to understand successful programs in the earlier grades, as successful preparation is often the key to success for any student seeking higher education. The paper also shows the testing and financial trends in colleges that present major barriers to the Hispanic population. The paper suggests that the answer may lay in specific cultural resource offerings from outside sources such as additional family and peer/mentor support that can make the difference in these students' academic success.
