How Do We Get There?
The HSI working group has outlined the following opportunities for involvement from the UNC community. Get involved to help us inform our next steps in becoming an HSI!
Get Informed: HSI 101
Faculty and staff can register for a Becoming a Hispanic Serving Institution session through UNC’s UNITE series to learn more about federally designated HSI's and where UNC is in the process of becoming an HSI.
Become An HSI Ambassador
Students, faculty and staff can join UNC’s team of HSI Ambassadors. Advance this initiative by sharing facts, data and next steps with your colleagues and fellow students. Help us spread the message of why HSI at UNC is so important.
Complete The Inventory
UNC is requesting all divisions and academic departments complete a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) inventory in support of our efforts in becoming a Students First institution targeted on Empowering Inclusivity.
Join The Conversation
In Spring 2022, UNC will host a round of campus forums based on information gathered from the UNC community around becoming an HSI and serving students through our DEI inventory.
UNC's HSI work group has begun taking requests from campus and community organizations to host "HSI 101" sessions detailing UNC's current progress toward becoming a Hispanic Serving Institution.
"Institutions who are purposeful in their pursuit to being student ready will be more focused on students of today and able to address inequities. Although many institutions have limited resources; yet, they continuously innovate to meet their mission."
