The Go-To Site for Latino Research

The Teachers College Web site is now the source for the latest research, academic papers and policy news relating to the Latino populations of the United States. That's because it's home to the New York Latino Research Clearinghouse, part of the New York Latino Research and Resources Network (NYLARNet). NYLARNet was founded with a three-year grant from the New York State legislature in 2003 to bring together the combined expertise of U. S. Latino studies scholars and other professionals.

"Research on Latinos has been scattered across many sources, with no single site that brings it all together," says Francisco L. Rivera-Batiz, Professor of Economics and Education at TC, who created and manages the site.

"The Clearinghouse will be at the forefront of disseminating the latest data and information on the history, socioeconomic situation and educational status of the various Latino groups in America and will facilitate networking and information among scholars."
