Waubonsee Community College is a Hispanic Serving Institution
What Does It Mean to be a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI)?
Waubonsee is proud to be formally designated a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) by the United States Department of Education with a student population that was 31.4% Latinx in fall 2020. Being an HSI means that it’s critical that student support adapts to meet the needs of Latinx students and provides streamlined pathways to a degree or credential. The college is dedicated to increasing the institution’s capacity to serve Latinx learners holistically.
