TG (Texas Guaranteed Student Loan Corporation)
Minority-Serving Institutions are colleges that enroll a high percentage of minority students. Because minority populations have experienced disproportionate barriers to higher education, the federal government provides them with financial support through various titles of the Higher Education Act. MSIs include Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs), as well as colleges and universities with high enrollments of Native Americans, Asian Americans and Native American Pacific Islanders, and Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians. This report covers HBCUs and HSIs in Texas. The authors use the term Minority-Serving Institution, or MSI, to refer generally to either an HBCU or HSI. Referring to the group MSI will be understood to include all HBCUs and HSIs. (Contains 19 footnotes.)
