Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) represent a small percentage of all institutions in the U.S. but educate a large portion of all black and Latino students, many of whom are low-income and first-generation college attendees. Given the population growth of these students overall, both HSIs and HBCUs are in a distinct position to help move the country's college completion agenda forward. Showing the commonalities between these two groups of institutions can be beneficial in raising policy awareness about Latino and black students and the institutions serving them.
