Why This Program?

Many Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) were created to provide postsecondary educational opportunities to students who previously were denied access to a quality education.

Today, the colleges continue that tradition while also making educational opportunities possible for Americans from diverse economic, ethnic, and social backgrounds. By making a significant difference in the lives of the students they educate and the communities they serve, MSIs are contributing to the nation’s economic and social growth and global competitiveness.
