Background and Grant History

Mission College was previously awarded Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) status over 10 years ago, and then our Hispanic or Latinx enrollment went above 25% again in 2016, so MC successfully competed for this one-time only, non-renewable grant award which expires on 9/30/2021.

The HSI StemLink Project is closely modeled on the existing AANAPISI Program which aims to improve the transition, progression, graduation, and transfer rates of Asian American, Native American, Pacific Islander and low-income students at Mission College. There are only 5 U.S. Colleges or Universities with both the AANAPISI and HSI designations.

We also partner with the following Mission College STEM Coalitions: MESA, STEM Core, and the STEM Learning Center.
