Join us for an exciting virtual discussion about the critical role of Texas institutions and their contributions to Latino student success and advancement.
Texas is home to almost 100 Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs), which are colleges and universities with high concentrations of Latino students.
Austin Community College District, Computing Alliance of Hispanic-Serving Institutions (CAHSI), El Paso Community College, San Antonio College | Alamo Community Colleges District, Texas State University
The year 2020 marked 25 years since Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) were specifically funded through federal legislation. In 2021, Excelencia is partnering with institutions across the US to discuss the impact of HSIs across the country.
This project includes virtual state briefings in Arizona, California, Florida, New York, and Texas, as well as a national briefing. The research and these discussions will inform higher education and policy sectors at a critical time in our country.
These briefings will highlight institutions in the state that are HSIs, Emerging HSIs, have graduate programs, support Latino college completion, have evidence-based practices supporting Latino student success, and have earned the Seal of Excelencia—a national certification for institutions that strive to go beyond enrollment to intentionally SERVE Latino students.
Excelencia in Education accelerates Latino student success in higher education by promoting Latino student achievement, conducting analysis to inform educational policies, and advancing institutional practices while collaborating with those committed and ready to meet the mission. Launched in 2004 in the nation’s capital, Excelencia has established a network of results-oriented educators and policymakers to address the U.S. economy’s needs for a highly educated workforce and engaged civic leaders.More information
