What is an HSI?

Did you know that Fresno Pacific University is the first CCCU institution in California to receive the “Hispanic Serving Institution” (HSI) designation? To celebrate Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) week (celebrated September 16 - 22, 2019), the OIR team has gathered this and other information on the Hispanic students that we serve here at FPU and significant milestones reached as an HSI throughout the years. We are just one of the 146 private not-for-profit HSI institutions across the United States. The IR team hopes that this data will encourage curiosity for learning more about our Hispanic students in higher education and how we, as an HSI, can continue to learn best practices that better serve our students.
