Hispanic Serving Institution

About HSI Status

Federal Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) designation affirms that a university has a student enrollment population that is more than 25 percent Hispanic. Panhandle State has a Hispanic student population of 29 percent. Beyond the distinction of federal designation, Panhandle State faculty and staff know that to be an HSI is a call to serve, celebrate, and support the advancement of the diverse students who identify as Latino/a, Chicano/a, Mexican-American, and Hispanic. We honor the resilience and determination of our students enrolled at Panhandle State and we are proud to offer our students the many benefits added because of our designation as a Hispanic Serving Institution through HACU.
