Emerging Hispanic-Serving Institutions (eHSIs): 2021-22

Excelencia in Education
March 2023


The defining characteristic of HSIs is their Hispanic enrollment, not their institutional mission. While there are 571 institutions that met the HSI enrollment criteria in 2021-22, there are also 401 institutions that have between 15 and 24.9 percent undergraduate full-time equivalent (FTE) Hispanic enrollment. These 401 institutions are identified as Emerging HSIs (eHSIs).

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