Excelencia in Education was founded with the belief that increasing knowledge about the current condition of Latino educational achievement, combined with data driven research and analysis will strengthen public policy and institutional practices and accelerate higher education success for Latino students.
This brief examined the program investment of HSIs receiving federal funds under the Title V-DHSI capacity building program within a six-year period and found many of these institutions were investing in efforts linked to improving student success.
This examination of federal support for HSIs during a six-year period (2004-2009) through individual Title V-DHSI grants resulted in three critical findings that link capacity building to student success:
1. Since first recognized in federal law, both the number of HSIs and federal funding to increase the capacity of HSIs through Title V-DHSI has increased.
2. Legislative changes decreasing the number of authorized activities eligible for grant support in Title V-DHSI has improved alignment with student success efforts.
3. The choice by HSIs to concentrate on faculty development and student services using Title V-DHSI grants demonstrates a sustained focus on academic quality and student success by HSIs.
