City College of San Francisco (CCSF) announced today that it is now recognized as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) nationally by the U.S. Department of Education. As the College’s 2017-2018 enrollment data shows the College had 26.3% Hispanic/Latinx full-time equivalent students enrolled at CCSF.

“We are overjoyed at receiving our official recognition as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI). Our status as an HSI will benefit all City College students because it makes the college eligible for the largest pool of available federal funding to support all students in their progress to degree and transfer and workforce certificate completion,” said Dr. Mark Rocha, Chancellor of CCSF. “It’s an honor to be the first Latino Chancellor of City College and to gain our official designation as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI).”

As a Hispanic Serving Institution, CCSF will now also able to compete for resources and funding that will ensure Hispanic/Latinx students’ academic success at community colleges.

“City College has always been a critical stepping stone to a better and brighter future for our students, including our Hispanic and Latinx students,” said Alex Randolph, President of the Board of Trustees at CCSF. “The additional funding the College could receive as a national HSI will allow us to invest in critical resources and student-focused programs strengthening our goal to close the achievement gap further.”
