Description

Alberto J. MaldonadoJacki BlackJoin ​the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE) for a discussion with Jac​queline Black and Alberto Jose Maldonado about their campuses' initiatives to support Latin​@ students and their shared goal of becoming Hispanic Serving Institutions over the next decade. 

Jacqueline Black is the ​associate ​director of Hispanic ​initiatives at Marquette University, and Alberto Jose Maldonado is the ​interim ​director of the Roberto Hernandez Center and the ​lead ​of the Chancellor’s Committee for Hispanic Student Initiatives at UW-Milwaukee.

In order to be designated a Hispanic Serving Institution, colleges/universities must have a Hispanic enrollment that is at least 25 percent of the institution's total enrollment. Marquette’s current Hispanic enrollment is 10.6 percent, and UW-Milwaukee's Hispanic enrollment is 9.9 percent.

Marquette University and UW-Milwaukee would be the first ​campuses in Wisconsin to become Hispanic Serving Institutions.

This event is cosponsored by the Latin American, Caribbean & Iberian Studies Program and the Chican@ and Latin@ Studies Program at UW-Madison.
