Proud to Be a Hispanic-Serving Institution

At FAU, we take great pride in being one of the most racially and culturally diverse universities in the country, and we are pleased to now be designated a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) by the U.S. Department of Education. The HSI designation, which is awarded to colleges and universities with enrollment of full-time Hispanic undergraduate students of at least 25 percent, will help FAU further serve this growing population.
 
FAU is now able to compete for federal grants under the Developing Hispanic-Serving Institutions Program, which will help expand educational opportunities for Hispanic students and improve recruitment and retention. This also will help FAU’s efforts toward reversing the national decline of minority STEM professionals.
 
FAU has enjoyed a long history of providing educational opportunities for a diverse population of students, and we look forward to expanding our support and services as a Hispanic-Serving Institution.
