The “vanishing Latino male” has a number of elements impacting the Latino male’s postsecondary experience. Factors shaping Latino male students’ college experiences include family, academic support, and co-curricular opportunities. The purpose of this study was to address the decreasing number of Latino male students from enrollment to graduation in higher education. This phenomenological study developed a deeper understanding of influences and support shaping the graduating Latino male in their postsecondary journey. The intent of this study was to develop a comprehensive understanding of critical influences shaping Latino males’ experiences in college. A triangulated approach was used to facilitate three phases of data collection. The work produced from this study contributes to identifying what Latino males believe are tools to build student success as Latino males.
