Field Notes

On Hispanic Serving Institutions & Puerto Rico

Hispanics are the largest growing population group in the United States.

The number of Hispanic (and more broadly, Minority) Serving Institutions is on the rise and, according to the Hispanic Association of Colleges & Universities, doesn’t appear to be slowing down.

Yet Hispanic Serving Institutions receive “69 cents for every dollar going to all other colleges and universities annually, per student, from all federal funding sources” (HACU 2016).
