At a critical juncture in the economic recovery of Texas and the nation, The University of Texas at El Paso is proud to join with national higher education leader Excelencia in Education to unveil “25 Years of Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs),” a new, major research project.
UTEP will co-host a virtual event at 8 a.m. MDT, Tuesday, March 23, 2021, titled “Texas Briefing on 25 Years of HSIs in Accelerating Latinx Student Success.”
University officials say the effort, supported by UTEP and other institutions throughout the United States, has produced a robust set of analyses to inform educational policymakers, academic researchers, elected officials and foundations on how best to serve Latino students in higher education.
UTEP President Heather Wilson will participate in the state briefing along with the presidents of The University of Texas at Austin and The University of Texas at San Antonio.
UTEP is a 2019 recipient of the Seal of Excelencia, which recognizes U.S. higher education institutions that intentionally serve Latino students and demonstrate positive student outcomes.
