This research studies the success of Hispanic midshipmen at the Naval Academy. Specifically, graduation, senior leadership positions during first class (senior) year, military performance grades, and cumulative academic Quality Point Rating (college GPA) are examined as the measures of success. A host of pre entry variables are used to control any affect they might have that would otherwise be confounded with midshipmen's ethnic, racial, or gender identification. Midshipmen from the classes of 1999 to 2004 compose the dataset for regression analysis. Hispanic midshipmen cannot be studied in a vacuum, and therefore, this research generates information on a number of different groups. But, the performance of Hispanic midshipmen at the Naval Academy is of primary focus throughout. Of the four measures of success, this study shows that Hispanic midshipmen are likely to have a lower cumulative academic QPR; but, are proportionately represented in terms of graduation, senior leadership positions, and military performance grades.
