Students at the University of Michigan School of Social Work conducted a survey of Latino and Latina students enrolled during Fall 2014. The focus was on campus climate for Latino/a students and their experiences on campus. Results from this survey provide information on the diversity of our Latino/a student community, the challenges they face, and their thoughts regarding resources. This 2016 report presents important information regarding diversity, equity, and inclusion issues for Latino and Latina students attending the University of Michigan. Please read the report now.
