dotEDU Episode 03: HSIs Are Narrowing Racial Gaps for Latinx Students


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Aired on August 14, 2019

​​​​​​Hispanic student enrollment in higher education has doubled in the last decade. Where are these students going, what do they need, how do Hispanic-serving Institution (HSIs) fit into the equation, and how is the current political climate affecting them?

In this episode, John Aguilar, executive director of legislative affairs at the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU), discusses Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) students, Dreamers, and how HSIs are leading the way in meeting students where they are while navigating unique funding challenges.
