Hispanic & African American parents want to be more involved in college programming.

Previous CampusESP analysis has shown that parents providing academic advice has apositive relationship with academic success.

By building bridges with African American and Hispanic parents (parents who are asking for more involvement anyway), colleges can help those students be more successful.

College parents interact 13 times a week with their students? One group of parents interacts even more.

Hispanic/Latino parents interact with their parents more frequently than other ethnicities.  

  • Hispanic parents are 18% more likely than other ethnicities to engage their students on a daily basis.
  • 39% of Hispanic parents interact with their students at least once a day, compared with 32% of the general parent population.
