Despite the considerable research that has been conducted on issues of diversity on college campuses, there has been limited research addressing this issue on Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs). The present study investigated the predictors of Hispanic students' attitudes toward special efforts to recruit non-Hispanic students and faculty at an HSI. Thirty-nine percent of Hispanic students supported efforts to recruit non-Hispanic students and 45% support efforts to recruit non-Hispanic faculty. Membership in on-campus clubs and organizations predicted students' support of special efforts to recruit both non-Hispanic students and faculty. However, speaking Spanish at home was only a predictor of support for efforts to recruit non-Hispanic students.
