On Wednesday evening, March 4th, the AHSIE Council voted to move its 2020 Annual Meeting to a virtual platform. We have made this choice out of an abundance of caution and believe it is the correct decision given the evolving public health concerns in Florida and across the country. The AHSIE board has closely watched the developing situation and the potential risk to the well-being of our students, presenters and attendees. This is something AHSIE takes very seriously.
The Alliance of Hispanic Serving Institution Educators (AHSIE) exists to support the work of the nation’s Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) as they seek to provide quality, relevant educational opportunities to large and growing numbers of underserved populations, particularly Hispanic/Latinx students. All the Alliance’s activities directly benefit practitioners and educators at HSIs through measures that involve cooperation, networking, partnerships, information-sharing, technical assistance and collaboration.
Hispanic Serving Institutions represent only 10% of colleges and universities in the United States, yet we enroll 60% of all Hispanic/Latinx students. This March we will come together once again to address our common goal of finding new ways to advance the HSI Community and to better serve our students.
The Best Practices Conference offers over 80 concurrent sessions showcasing the creativity, innovation, and commitment of HSI practitioners from dozens of colleges and universities from across the nation. This four-day event provides practitioners and educators at HSIs with the opportunity to network and share their knowledge while learning how to effectively manage educational initiatives and maximize grant funding.
Florida Atlantic University was founded in 1961, in Boca Raton on an 850-acre site located near the Atlantic Ocean. The campus offers a broad range of academic programs, activities, and services. Ten distinguished colleges offer more than 170+ degree programs in fields that span the arts and humanities, the sciences, medicine, nursing, accounting, business, education, public administration, social work, architecture, engineering, computer science and more.
