This is YOUR university. You have a home at the University of Kansas. We are delighted with the growing number of Latino students on the KU campus, and we are proud of their success. We have come to understand the importance of creating early and meaningful connections with Latino students in regard to recruitment. We continue to search for unique and effective ways to connect to Latino students across the state.

Ruby Montoya, a Garden City Community College transfer student, was recently featured in an article that was translated and published in the Garden City Spanish-language newspaper La Semana. This article, as well as an article published in Dodge City’s Spanish-language newspaper Las Estrellas, featured Latino issues and were published to correspond with upcoming visits planned by KU staff members. As a result, from these local community events, several other articles are being planned.

The Provost’s office has recently hired an individual who has translated several documents into Spanish, specifically admissions and scholarship materials In addition, we are working to provide the KU website in Spanish. Check the KU website this summer for the new KU Spanish portal.

We continue to support and expand preexisting programs that provide Latino students with the opportunity to experience college life. The Harvest of Hope program provides a 3-week summer academic enrichment program on the KU campus to migrant-eligible high school students. The program, which is now in its second year, will host 50 students this coming summer; as compared with 30 students who participated in the summer of 2008.
