Topic: Underrepresented Student Success: Institutional Infrastructures & Identity
This symposium will provide a multi-perspective overview of one institution’s self-exploration of its Hispanic Serving Institution status. The University of La Verne chose to explicitly examine its HSI status to discern if it is truly a Hispanic serving, rather than simply a Hispanic enrolling, institution.
First generation students often lack the resources to be successful in college. This symposium addresses the pipeline. How do we recruit first generation students to college? How do we keep them in school? And how do we get them to continue on? A university infrastructure is key to this support.
