Emerging HSIs

There is currently no federal definition for “Emerging HSIs,” but Excelencia in Education identifies emerging HSIs as institutions with an undergraduate FTE Hispanic enrollment between 15 and 24 percent. While emerging HSIs do not have the critical mass of Latino student enrollment required to meet the definition of an HSI, these institutions may soon meet the criteria as their enrollment grows and Latino representation increases.
