Emerging Hispanic-Serving Institutions (eHSIs): 2022-23

Excelencia in Education
March 2024


The defining characteristic of HSIs is their Hispanic enrollment, not their institutional mission. While there are 600 institutions that met the HSI enrollment requirement in 2022-23, there are also 412 institutions that have between 15 and 24.9 percent undergraduate full-time equivalent (FTE) Hispanic enrollment. These 412 institutions are identified as Emerging HSIs (eHSIs).

Excelencia in Education developed the Emerging HSIs (eHSI) category to track the growth of potential HSIs in 2009. While eHSIs do not have the critical mass of Latino student enrollment required to meet the definition of an HSI, these institutions may soon meet the requirement as their enrollment grows and Latino representation increases.
