The defining characteristic of HSIs is their Hispanic enrollment, not their institutional mission. While there were 356 institutions that met the HSI enrollment criteria in 2011-2012, there were also 250 institutions that had between 15 and 24 percent undergraduate full-time equivalent Hispanic enrollment. These institutions are identified as emerging HSIs.

While emerging HSIs do not have the critical mass of Latino student enrollment required to meet the definition of an HSI, these institutions may soon meet the criteria as their enrollment grows and Latino representation increases.
