what is title v and hsis
What is Title V and HSIs?
  • According to the U.S. Department of Education, “a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) is defined as a non-profit institution that has at least 25% Hispanic full-time equivalent (FTE) enrollment.” http://www.ed.gov/programs/idueshsi/definition.html
  • Title V is a five year grant from the United States Department of Education under the Title V (Hispanic Serving Institutions) Program. This program helps eligible institutions of higher education (IHEs) enhance and expand their capacity to serve Hispanic and low-income students by providing funds to improve and strengthen the academic quality, institutional stability, management, and fiscal capabilities of eligible institutions.
  • The primary goal of the NSU grant is to provide support to develop research-based programs targeted at increasing student engagement and retention, leading to academic success.

Jean Torres

“When I began college, I thought I was fooling myself about even attending college. I thought that college would soon show me that I was a failure and I would never graduate…I will begin Dental School next year where I will continue my academic success and defy the odds by continuing to construct my extraordinary story.

So my question is what is your story and are you willing to defy the odds? “

slide45

Cynthia Zamor

“Success to me is not the number of awards I’ve won or the amount of people who are aware of what I’ve accomplished; it’s the simple fact that I am achieving everything that I’ve set out to do.”

slide46

Gumbold Ligden

“I know what it feels like to be alone and on your own. I believe that if you take responsibility for your life and make conscious decisions then you are

bound for success.”
