Analysis of Concentrations of Latino College Students

February 13, 2015

Just 12 percent of colleges enroll 60 percent of all Latino undergraduates, according to a new analysis from Excelencia in Education and the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU). These colleges are deemed to be Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) under federal guidelines. They are institutions where at least one-quarter of full-time students are Hispanic. The number of HSIs has more than doubled in the two decades before last year, to 409 from 189. They are located in 21 states, according to the report, and enroll 1.6 million Latino students.
