Clovis Community College is proud to be a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) that is committed to the critical role of educating and empowering Hispanics. Each year, the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) calls on HispanicServing Institutions (HSIs) to join in the national observance of HSIs Week. The purpose of HSIs Week is to recognize the 539 HSIs throughout the nation for their work and vital role in expanding educational opportunities for Hispanics. This year, HSIs Week will take place Sept. 14-20, 2020, coinciding with Hispanic Heritage Month. Despite the constraints placed on colleges and universities by COVID-19, campuses across the U.S., including CCC are finding creative ways to celebrate HSIs Week.
We look forward to celebrating this month with you!
