Plenary - UCI as a Minority Serving Institution

Event type
Event Description

UCI is the only member of the prestigious Association of American Universities (AAU) to hold dual designation as both a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) and an Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institution (AANAPISI). This presentation explores what is at stake in UCI’s transformation into a Minority Serving Institution (MSI). It focuses on three critical questions:

  • Who are our students?
  • Is the campus serving them well?
  • How can we improve?

This presentation will inform attendees about:

  • The value of data disaggregation
  • Strategies for coordinating student success initiatives
  • Efforts to validate student cultural and intellectual capital
  • Efforts on building relationships with other Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs)
