Becoming a Hispanic-Serving Institution: San Diego State University qualified for the designation as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) by the Department of Education as of Spring 2012. This national designation provides access to federal grants and scholarships to colleges and universities that serve a significant population of low-income students and at least 25% Hispanic students. Research on HSI's has opened up a conversation about the opportunities and barriers in attempts at serving said students. As per the recent HSI Taskforce Report recommendations, we are strengthening our steps to better serve the "Hispanic" and low-income students that we enroll. This session will review strategies and plans for what it means for SDSU to truly embrace its HSI status.
