San Angelo Workplace for Women Spotlight - Angelo State University- HSI Multicultural Program

HSI Multicultural Program, Angelo State University

Angelo State University Hispanic Serving Institution Multicultural Programs strive to make a college education achievable for any high school student, no matter where they come from. In the fall of 2009, Angelo State University was named a Hispanic Serving Institution, and since then, the university has strived to establish various multicultural and educational programs throughout campus. The goal of these various programs is to increase retention and graduation rates of rural, Hispanic and low income students by focusing on improving college readiness. They not only help high school students prepare for a continuing education, but also reach out to their families to let them know how important a higher education is for their child’s future. Angelo State University Hispanic Serving Institution doesn’t just stop there, but also strives to promote various other programs throughout campus, such as First Generation Host Family, that aims to smooth the overwhelming transition for high school students into college life.   

Congratulations ASU-HSI Multicultural Programs!
