Despite the increasing numbers of Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) and their importance in serving students who have historically been underserved in higher education, limited research has addressed the meaning of the growth of these institutions and its implications for higher education. Hispanic-Serving Institutions fills a critical gap in understanding the organizational behavior of institutions that serve large numbers of low-income, first-generation, and Latina/o students. Leading scholars on HSIs contribute chapters to this volume, exploring a wide array of topics, data sources, conceptual frameworks, and methodologies to examine HSIs' institutional environments and organizational behavior. This cutting-edge volume explores how institutions can better serve their students and illustrates HSIs' changing organizational dynamics, potentials, and contributions to American higher education.

"This book comes at a critical time for the future of higher education. As more and more colleges and universities become Hispanic-Serving Institutions, it is important for the higher education community to understand this new majority and provide an environment that will result in student success. This book provides examples of the organizational behavior of successful Hispanic-Serving Institutions and is a must-read for all in education."

--Mildred Garcia, President, California State University, Fullerton

"With the growing Latino population in higher education, this important and compelling book is essential reading for anyone interested in serving our nation's growing and diverse student population. It is well researched, forward thinking, and links research to practice."

-Marybeth Gasman, Professor of Higher Education, University of Pennsylvania

"Hispanic-Serving Institutions is a cutting-edge examination of the issues and challenges facing these institutions of higher education. As such, it serves not only as a foundational primer for the uninitiated but most importantly as an essential referent for scholars and institutional leaders."

--Arturo Madrid, Murchison Distinguished Professor of the Humanities, Trinity University
