Emerging Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs): Serving Latino Students Briefing
U.S. Representative Jared Polis (D-CO); Sue McMillin, President and CEO of TG; Deborah A. Santiago, Vice President for Policy and Research, Excelencia in Education; Juan Sepulveda, Executive Director, White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans; Margarita Benitez, Director of Higher Education, The Education Trust; Luis Torres, Deputy Provost for Academic Affairs at Metropolitan State College of Denver (an institution featured in the report); and Sarita Brown, President of Excelencia in Education were among the speakers at a Capitol Hill briefing held on February 4, 2010 discussing Excelencia in Education's latest brief, Emerging Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs): Serving Latino Students.
In this brief, Excelencia in Education focuses on the methods and strategies producing successful results at "Emerging" HSIs - institutions that enroll 15-24 percent and have the potential to become HSIs in the next few years. This brief is the first formal appraisal of this important group of institutions and the role they play in serving Latino students.
This brief synthesizes national Latino trend data, results from a web-based survey and four case studies to examine Emerging HSIs' awareness of Latino students on their campuses and changes in institutional practices to better serve their Latino students while serving all 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), and Metropolitan State College of Denver (CO).
