The White House Initiative on Advancing Educational Equity, Excellence and Economic Opportunity for Hispanics (Initiative) was re-established in 2021 by President Joe Biden. The Initiative was originally established by President George H.W. Bush in 1990 to address the educational disparities faced by the Hispanic community.

The Initiative’s scope was expanded to advance educational equity and economic opportunity for Latino and Hispanic students, families, and communities. The Nation’s future prosperity and global leadership across industries is intrinsically tied to the success of Hispanic and Latino students, and their success is a priority of this Administration.
