Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) Faculty Seed Grant Program Overview
In just three years, the University of Arizona went from being federally designated as a Hispanic Serving Institution in 2018, to being one of only nine institutions to be awarded the inaugural Seal of Excelencia in 2019, a national certification for institutions that strive to go beyond enrollment to intentionally serve Latinx/a/o students, and was named Outstanding Member Institution by the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities in 2020. Coupled with these distinctions, the university is committed to examining within as we aim to further advance these efforts across faculty scholarship and creative work.
The HSI Faculty Seed Grant Program is offered through Faculty Affairs and HSI Initiatives with generous funding from Research, Innovation, and Impact (RII). The goal of the fund is to support scholarly research and creative work among early-career faculty which enriches the UA's designation as an HSI, and advances scholarship that directly impacts Latinx/a/o and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) students and communities, and advances UArizona's Purpose and Values around integrity, compassion, exploration, adaptation, inclusion, and determination.
