Hispanic Serving Institution

What does it mean to be an Hispanic Serving Institution?

Mesa College is proud to be formally designated as an “Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI)” for the past two years. One of the primary criteria to be designated as such is that a college must have a Latino student enrollment of at least 25%. As of Fall 2013, Mesa had a Latino student enrollment of 33%, which is more than double of what it was about a decade ago in Fall 2002, when the Latino student population was at 14.8%. Based on demographic trends, this percentage is expected to rise.
