Emerging Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs): Serving Latino Students
This brief examines Emerging Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) -- institutions that do not yet meet the HSI enrollment threshold of 25 percent, but which are within the critical mass range of 15-24 percent and have the potential to become HSIs in the next few years.
The brief integrates national data with data from a web-based survey and four case studies to examine Emerging HSIs' awareness of Latinos as a definable group on their campus, as well as changes in institutional practices to better serve their Latino students.
The four Emerging HSIs studied in this brief include:
- Loyola Marymount University (CA)
- Palm Beach Community College-Lake Worth (FL)
- Texas State University-San Marcos (TX)
- Metropolitan State College of Denver (CO)
Emerging Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs): Serving Latino Students was made possible through a TG Public Benefit Program grant.
