Numbers of Hispanic-Serving Institutions Up

August 31, 2011

The number of Hispanic-serving institutions -- those where undergraduate enrollment is at least 25 percent Latino -- continues to increase, according to an analysis released today by Excelencia in Education. In 2009-10, there were 293 such institutions, up from 236 six years earlier. More than half of Latino undergraduates are enrolled in these institutions. Almost half of the institutions (137 of them) were community colleges. Excelencia in Education also identified another 204 colleges as "emerging" Hispanic-serving institutions, those with Latino enrollments of 15-24 percent.
