About us.

The HSI STEM Resource Hub is led by faculty at NMSU, DACC, and Cal State Northridge. The project is supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF1832338, PI Serrano, NMSU); NSF1832345, PI Zavala, CSUN) under the Improving Undergraduate STEM Education: Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI Program) that was established in response to the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 (P.L. 115-31) and the American Innovation and Competitiveness Act (P.L. 114-329).

The Hub comprises principal investigators and senior personnel at all three institutions, a program manager, an evaluation team, an advisory board and a growing network of faculty and staff at HSIs and non-HSIs, industry (upon request), federal and non-profit organizations. The HSI Program seeks to increase the retention and graduation rates of students pursuing associate or baccalaureate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
