From Capacity to Success: HSIs and Latino Student Success through Title V
Villarreal, Rebecca C.; Santiago, Deborah A.
Excelencia in Education (NJ1)
Latinos are the second largest student population enrolled in higher education and the majority are concentrated in a small number of institutions--Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs). Given the concentrated enrollment of Latinos at HSIs and the opportunity to increase Latinos' educational achievement, reviewing the link between capacity building, academic quality and student success for the Title V Developing HSIs program can inform more critical policy discussions of access to a quality education and ensuring college completion for more Latino and other low-income students. This brief examined the program investment of HSIs receiving federal funds under the Title V capacity building program within a six-year period and found many of these institutions are investing in efforts linked to improving student success. Appended are: (1) Full List of Allowable Activities from 1994-2008; and (2) Number of Title V Awards by Allowable Activity. (Contains 1 table, 1 graph and 11 endnotes.)
