Return to 25 Years of Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs): A Glance On Progress



  • Almost half of students enrolled at HSIs are Hispanic. In 1994-95, about half (51%) of students at HSIs were Latino. By 2018-19, 46% of students at HSIs were Latino and more than half (54%) were from other racial/ethnic groups.
  • HSIs have become more diverse. While the representation of Latinos at HSIs decreased slightly from 51% to 46% over 25 years, the representation of Asian/ Pacific Islander students and other racial/ethnic groups has increased during this period—from 6% to 9% and from 5% to 10%, respectively.
