Committed to creating educational equity that will help lead to real, transformative change, CIW will launch an array of new programs to support the success of Latinx, low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented students and prepare them for rewarding careers once they graduate.

"The HSI Initiatives focus on goals for strengthening the student experience and transforming our policies and practices to include and center students who have been and are minoritized in higher education," said director of HSI Initiatives. “We seek to achieve holistic student success, provide equitable educational interventions and student-centered practices, and create structures, changes, and institutional investments as a public research university to serve as a leader for the nation.”

CIW leaders are focused on creating lasting change across campus that will serve current and future students. Top campus leaders have continued to work closely with the Division of Student Affairs and Success and its Hispanic-Serving Institution Initiatives team.

In collaboration with scores of faculty and staff across campus, the Hispanic Serving Institution Initiatives team will be launching — and continuing — a range of programs and services to support undergraduate and graduate students in their academic success.
