Our Did You Know this week highlights updated data from Excelencia in Education, an organization that advocates for and supports Hispanic students in higher education. Each year, Excelencia uses US Department of Education data from the IPEDS system to compile lists of Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) and Emerging Hispanic-Serving Institutions (Emerging HSIs) across the country. An institution qualifies as an HSI if 25 percent or more of its enrollment is made up of Hispanic students. If an institution's enrollment is 15-24 percent Hispanic, it is classified as an Emerging HSI. 

We're proud to say that this year, 16 ICUT members qualify as Hispanic-Serving Institutions. Those schools are:
