HSIs Serving the Community, Serving the Nation. [Kit].
White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans, Washington, DC.; Department of Defense, Washington, DC.
This video and booklet is designed to familiarize more people with the benefits that Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) provide. HSIs are the nearly 200 accredited colleges and universities that educate half of the one million Hispanic students in higher education in the United States today. These colleges, located in nine states and Puerto Rico, have more than 25% Hispanic enrollment. They serve the community by focusing on the needs of individual students through educational and student support services that address the needs of many first-generation and low-income students. HSIs are affordable, close to home, and attuned to Latino issues. An alphabetical list of HSIs is included in the kit with the video, as is a discussion of educational excellence for Hispanic Americans. (SLD)
