                                                      John B.King Jr. Defines What It Takes to be a Great HSI


“I am tremendously proud that John Jay became a federal HSI as a direct result of Hispanic students expressly choosing to be a part of the John Jay community, and creating a responsibility in turn for our community to ensure that our Hispanic scholars—like all of our students—reach their goals. Hispanic students account for 47% of our undergraduate population. And, in my eyes, promoting and celebrating our HSI status is a vital key for the success of all our students. Simply put, our HSI status is integral to who we are at John Jay, and when Hispanic students feel welcomed and included in our community, everyone is uplifted.” 

(from John Jay College President Karol V. Mason’s message, “Celebrating Our HSI Status”)


We encourage everyone to read this position paper on John Jay's history and future as an HSI, written by Latin American and Latina/o Studies Department faculty members Lisandro Pérez, José Luis Morin, and Isabel Martínez:
