IUCRC BRAIN SITE NAMED A HISPANIC-SERVING INSTITUTION BY THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
Arizona State University, an IUCRC BRAIN Site, has been named a Hispanic-Serving Institution by the U.S. Department of Education. Hispanic-Serving Institutions are defined as institutions that enroll a minimum of 25% full-time undergraduate Latinx students. ASU began exceeding this threshold with its immersion (on-campus) undergraduate population in the fall of 2019 and has continued to do so every year since.
In 2021, ASU was home to more than 16,840 Hispanic students (26% of our undergraduate immersion population) compared with about 10,400 in fall 2011. ASU Online has also seen growth among Hispanic students, accounting for nearly 22% of total undergraduate online learners in fall 2021, up nearly 9,500 students from 2016. When all students — undergraduate and graduate, immersion and online — are included, ASU’s Hispanic enrollment stands at more than 30,200 students, a big increase from the roughly 12,240 such students in fall 2011.
