The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities and Hispanic-Serving Institutions: Partners in the Advancement of Hispanic Higher Education
Calderon Galdeano, Emily; Flores, Antonio R.; Moder, John
Journal of Latinos and Education, v11 n3 p157-162 2012
The relationship between the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) and the recognition of Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) occurs at the federal level. HACU's origins and the legislative history of the HSI designation in federal law are explored. The demographic growth and corresponding importance of Hispanics in the American workforce highlight the critical need to close educational achievement gaps. HSIs are at the forefront of efforts to increase access and success among Hispanics pursuing a college education. Information is provided on successful evidence-based intervention strategies to support these goals.
