Comprehensive HSI Membership Lists

The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities and Excelencia in Education provide comprehensive HSI membership lists on their respective Web sites. The HACU list contains approximately 230 members, while the Excelencia list contains nearly 300 members. Institutions on these lists have self-identified as Hispanic-Serving Institutions or emerging Hispanic-Serving Institutions. They generally have not received a federal designation as an HSI, and as such, do not receive federal funding. There may, however, be some overlap among the HACU, Excelencia and Department lists.
