A Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) is a federal designation by the U.S. Department of Education that acknowledges colleges and universities with 25% or more total undergraduate Hispanic full-time equivalent student enrollment.
There are 20 HSIs classified as a R1 Institution, the UA being one of 20 universities that joined the Alliance of Hispanic Serving Research Universities which launched in 2022.
- Hispanic Serving Institution Fellows Program - Supported by a strategic investment from the Office of the Provost and partnering departments across campus, the HSI Fellows Program serves to strategically further the scope and depth of work around our HSI designation and provide a venue for community-building and career development for a cohort of up to 10 faculty and staff each year through a project-based leadership experience, mentoring and coaching, and a series of targeted workshops.
- University of Arizona Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) Faculty Seed Grants. The goal of this fund is to support scholarly research and creative work among faculty which enriches the UArizona’s designation as an Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI), advances scholarship that directly impacts BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) populations, and fulfills UArizona’s Purpose and Values.
Established in 2010 to enhance and diversify the University’s leadership capacity, the Institute provides a year-long professional development program for ~25 faculty and campus leaders, including academic and administrative department heads, associate and assistant deans, and individuals identified as emerging leaders.
