Negotiating Access and Tier One Aspirations: The Historical Evolution of a Striving Hispanic-Serving Institution
Doran, Erin E.
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v14 n4 p343-354 Oct 2015
This study evaluates the recent move toward Tier One by the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) in light of its historical commitment to serve the largely Hispanic population of South Texas. Among the largest Hispanic-serving universities, UTSA provides a useful case study of this type of institution both historically and at the organizational level. This study contributes to how researchers and practitioners think about Hispanic-serving institutions (HSIs) and how they balance access and excellence.
