The interactive map below shows the relationship between Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) / Emerging Hispanic-Serving Institutions (eHSIs) and Hispanic-Serving School Districts (HSSDs) / Emerging Hispanic-Serving School Districts (eHSSDs). According to the most recent Department of Education data, there are 523 HSIs; 328 eHSIs; 3,343 HSSDs; and 1,462 eHSSDs. The Hispanic Educational Resources and Empowerment (HERE) Act of 2019 (H.R. 3827), introduced by Rep. Joaquin Castro, creates a new grant program at the Department of Education to support partnerships and collaboration between the Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) and school districts that educate the majority of Hispanic students. HACU strongly supports the HERE Act since it addresses the lingering achievement gaps among Hispanic students, and the debilitating dynamic of PK-12 and higher education not working together. To learn more please visit the HERE Act issue page.
