Hispanic-serving initiatives empower us to live into our HSI identity and develop the programs and practices that are fundamental to global leadership. 

Our Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) designation demonstrates the University's commitment to living out its mission within the changing context of student demographics. It is also a transformation that focuses on student success for all historically marginalized students* (defined below), including Latinx and/or low income students.

*Historically marginalized individuals are those who identify as Latinx, Black/African American, Pacific Islander, American Indian, Alaska Native or any combination of these identities.
