Webinar: STEM Pathways at Hispanic-Serving Community Colleges—the Illinois HSCC Context

Speakers: Angel L. Velez, HyeJin Tina Yeo, and Dr. Eboni Zamani-Gallaher

The most populous regions for Hispanic-serving institutions are the West Coast and Southwest. However, in the Midwest, the state of Illinois is an anomaly since it has the largest number of minority-serving institutions, the majority of which are Hispanic-Serving Community Colleges (HSCCs). Latinx students represent 25 percent or more of the total student population at these associate-granting institutions.

This webinar will share data on HSCCs and emerging HSCCs, with attention given to STEM pathways and degree completion. Discussions will center on findings from case studies of HSCCs in Illinois and promising practices for broadening participation of Latinx students in STEM education.
