Information for:

Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI)

The purpose of this project is to improve retention and graduation rates, particularly among Hispanic Students, by improving the academic and academic support structures at ASU. To that end, ASU has developed the following activity- improving retention and graduation rates of Hispanic and low income students- into three components:

  • Overcoming Barriers in Developmental English and Math
  • Strengthening Academic Support and Faculty Development
  • Strengthening HSI Outreach and Services for Hispanic Students

Critical imperatives:

  • To tie the grant goals directly to our institutional strategic plan for retention
  • To create an integrated university enrollment management architecture
  • To migrate permanent financial support for these goals from the grant to the institution

Institutional challenges to be remedied:

  • Extensive developmental education needs in English and mathematics
  • Fragmented tutoring and learning support
  • Inadequate student engagement
  • Advising weaknesses
  • Insufficient support for faculty/staff training in diversity issues
  • Minimal outreach to area high schools and communities

Organizing committees include:

  • Project Steering Committee
  • HSI Leadership Advisory Board
  • Multiple sub-groups organized around specific tasks

HSI Funding

This project is funded in whole by a $3.22 million grant from the U.S Department of Education under the Developing Hispanic Serving Institutions Program (Title V).

NOTE: The Title V Program is NOT a scholarship or fellowship program for individuals or for research. The program is designed to support institutions of higher education that are HSIs.
