ASU named Hispanic-Serving Institution
Expanding pathways to opportunity
As part of our path to becoming an HSI, ASU was named one of the nine inaugural recipients of the Seal of Excelencia in 2019 and was recertified in 2022. This recognition from Excelencia in Education commends ASU's commitment to accelerating Latino student success by showing intentionality and impact in serving Latino students. ASU is proud of these distinctions, and will continue to create an environment that is conducive to Hispanic and Latinx students’ success at the university and beyond.
For decades, students and scholars have represented the academic and research excellence of ASU around the world, through their participation in the Fulbright Program. In 2022, the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs named ASU a Fulbright Hispanic Serving Institution Leader recognizing the noteworthy engagement with exchange participants and promotion of program opportunities to our campus. The support for our Hispanic community to pursue Fulbright as a part of their academic and professional journey remains fundamental to our aspirations and this new distinction will be integral in advancing this work.
