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).
