Nationally, over half of all Latino undergraduate students in higher education (64%) in 2015-16 enrolled in the 472 of institutions in the US identified as Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs), designated as such because at least 25 percent of undergraduate FTE enrollment at these institutions is Hispanic enrollment. Another 323 institutions qualified as Emerging HSIs because their FTE Hispanic student enrollment rate was between 15 and 24 percent of total undergraduate enrollment. Despite their impact on Latino students and the community they serve, these institutions are largely unrecognized in the current literature.This webinar will present the results of our study on HSIs and Emerging HSIs in the Midwest. The study used mixed methods to examine the characteristics of these institutions and the roles they and their faculty and administrators play in the development of Latino students and their communities.
Presented by: Rene P. Rosenbaum, an associate professor in the School of Planning, Design, and Construction at Michigan State University, and Stephen Jeanetta, a State Extension Specialist for Community Development Process and Associate Extension Professor with University of Missouri Extension.
