About Faculty Resources
This series created for UArizona faculty, supports faculty community building, staying connected and networking in an inclusive, culturally relevant, family friendly environment.
In the fall of 1996, a new initiative called HeadsUp (Heads Engaged in Advancing Departmental Strategies through Unifying Paradigms) began to take form. The operational framework agreed upon then still guides the organization activities more than a decade later (see HeadsUp Steering Committee Operational Guidelines).
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. The University of Arizona is one of four HSIs affiliated with the Association of American Universities and classified as R1, engaging in the highest levels of research activity.
- 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.
