HSI Grants & Initiatives Overview

Since 2015 UC Santa Cruz has earned six multi-million dollar Hispanic Serving Institution grants designed to fund programs and resources promoting educational equity, cultural inclusivity, and academic achievement.

HSI Initiatives uses an Integrated Logic Model to unify their programs across all grants and their work toward equity, for students’ college and career pathways and for institutional change. Click here to see the current Integrated Logic Model guiding today's efforts.
