National Hispanic Institute Program at DePauw

DePauw University in Greencastle served as the host of the Great Lakes Great Debate, a program for high school freshmen presented by the National Hispanic Institute 20-25 June, reports the DePauw news bureau. The Great Debate allows high school freshmen the opportunity to test and improve their written and verbal communication skills through organized discussions and debates about issues that impact today's Latino community.

The program is coordinated by the National Hispanic Institute, which aims to cultivate leadership for the 21st century U.S. Latino community.

The event is presented through a grant from the Lumina Foundation for Education. The Lumina Foundation for Education is an Indianapolis-based, private foundation dedicated to expanding access and success in education beyond high school.
