February 5: MSI Symposium

 

MINORITY-SERVING INSTITUTIONS: OPPORTUNITIES FOR RESEARCH AND COLLABORATION

Historically Black colleges and universities, Hispanic-serving institutions, tribal colleges and universities, and emerging minority-serving institutions (MSIs) provide access to and support through higher education for many minoritized students nationwide. Research on MSIs, however, offers sometimes conflicting views on the prospects for sustaining MSIs’ missions of servingstudents from these populations. Join scholars of and institutional leaders from MSIs for this symposium examining current research, identifying needed areas for further investigation, and exploring potential collaborative efforts in this vital sector of higher education in the United States.

Topics for the Symposium will include institutional financial resilience, holistic models of student services support, placing minority-serving institutions in a global context, and enhancing pathways from community colleges to four-year institutions, as well as preparation for graduate education.
