25 Years of HSIs →
The year 2020, marked 25 years since Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) were funded through federal legislation. Since our founding in 2004, Excelencia in Education has taken responsibility for chronicling the growth and impact of HSIs by issuing the annual list of institutions, creating the definition of Emerging HSIs, and producing numerous seminal briefs and fact sheets and the role of HSIs in advancing Latino college completion.
In 2021, Excelencia is presenting 25 Years of HSIs, a comprehensive research project and working with colleges and universities committed to intentionally serving Latino students and all students. Earlier this year, we held 5 virtual state briefings to inform high level engagement by leaders in higher education and policy sectors to focus on current opportunities to address Latino students enrolling and graduating from college.
The National Briefing on 25 Years of HSIs will be presented in cooperation with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, to support using Excelencia’s research to advance a strategy of institutional transformation as our country recovers from the pandemic. This important event will highlight the historical impact and influence of HSIs, Emerging HSIs, HSIs with graduate programs, and institutions that have earned the Seal of Excelencia – a national certification for institutions that go beyond enrollment to demonstrate they intentionally SERVE Latino students, while serving all their students.
Join us at 1 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, April 21, 2021.
