Abstract

The recent, rapid proliferation of higher education institutions with 25% or more undergraduate Hispanic student enrollment, particularly in the Southwest, coupled with the persistent gap in Hispanic student success in STEM fields, highlights a national need for building and strengthening capacity to better support all students at Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs). This report serves as an executive summary of key recommendations that emerged from extensive analyses of critical needs, challenges, and opportunities related to improving STEM education in HSIs. Inputs were generated during a 2017 working conference convened, in part, to inform the development of a HSI program through the National Science Foundation (NSF). The conference was intentionally designed to maximize opportunities for collaboration among students, faculty, and administrators from both 2-year and 4-year HSIs.

Keywords: Hispanic Serving Institution, Minority Serving Institution, STEM
