COVID-19, DACA and the Responses of Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs): A Virtual Town Hall Discussion
July 8, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 2:45 pm
Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) are the fastest growing type of enrollment-based Minority Serving Institutions, serving the educational needs of hundreds of thousands of students, advancing the full spectrum of human knowledge, and invigorating the cultural, social, and economic horizons of the regions they serve. Today these institutions are at the forefront of the nation’s conversations about institutionalized racism, student support, and immigration that permeate political and legal discussions from campuses all the way to the recent Supreme Court decision on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. HSIs are also at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19, researching treatments, keeping their states and communities informed, and often providing direct service to their communities.
