Thank you for attending the AHSIE 11th Annual Best Practices Conference! We hope to see you in 2020!

Institutionalizing Inclusive Support Systems for Latinx in Higher Education

To foster Latinx college completion, HSIs must respond to the holistic needs of Latinx students with effective strategies and infrastructures that assist them to thrive within the institutional environment. This year's theme explored best practices and tools to enhance and strengthen initiatives geared towards the unique learning needs of Latinx students.

Hispanic Serving Institutions represent only 10% of colleges and universities in the United States, yet we enroll 60% of all Hispanic students. In April of 2019, we came together to address our common goal of finding new ways to advance the HSI Community and to better serve our students.

The Best Practices Conference offered 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 provided 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.

Sponsorship Opportunities

By supporting the AHSIE annual conference you’re directly supporting hispanic students nationwide. All of the Alliance’s activities directly benefit practitioners and educators at HSIs through measures that involve cooperation, networking, partnerships, information-sharing, technical assistance and collaboration.
