Latino Student Success at Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs): Summaries from Presidential Interviews
Santiago, Deborah
Excelencia in Education (NJ1)
In 2003-04 representatives from six baccalaureate-granting Hispanic-Serving Institutions in three state public university systems participated in a project entitled, "Latino Student Success at Hispanic-Serving Institutions." These institutions include two from California State University--(Los Angeles and Dominguez Hills), two from City University of New York (Lehman College and New York City College of Technology), and two from The University of Texas (El Paso and San Antonio). All six institutions receive support through the Developing Hispanic Serving Institutions program, authorized under Title V of the Higher Education Act (as well as other federal programs supporting HSIs). Direct involvement from campus leaders, especially their presidents, proved critical to the Latino Student Success (LSS) project. This summary profiles information gathered from interviews with each of the LSS project presidents. A description of the research methodology and a list of the institutions and presidents are also included herein.
