As UC Davis closes in on securing federal designation as a Hispanic Serving Institution, the university’s HSI Task Force will hold a speakers forum next week addressing “HSI Strategies, Topics and Models.”

“Join us for an afternoon of panels featuring scholars and experts speaking on topics related to what it might mean for UC Davis to be Hispanic-serving — from defining the metrics to rethinking the classroom,” the organizers said.
