"A nuanced perspective on HSIs that will interest academics, practitioners, and graduate students alike. The book is rich in content and context."

"This is a groundbreaking narrative on HSIs in American higher education. It expertly captures the complex issues HSIs face, including the evolution of their identities as Hispanic-"Serving" Institutions. A must-read for anyone interested in better understanding the essential role that HSIs play in advancing Hispanic educational success and America's future."

"Dr. Garcia provides an in-depth analysis and evaluation defining, in addition to demographics, what it means to become an HSI: taking the challenge head on and identifying the strength of HSIs and the important role they play in educating Latinx students and the underserved. The vitality and viability of our nation is anchored in educating this new majority."

"This book brings readers inside the world of HSIs. It disrupts conventional perspectives about institutional performance and expands considerations of how HSIs advance equity in US higher education. It will quickly become essential reading for anyone seeking to better understand these institutions and the students who attend them."

"As the largest minority-serving institution type, HSIs are at once ubiquitous and yet often overlooked. Gina Garcia unpacks the history, organizational cultures, and counterstories of HSIs to bring these critical institutions into full view while at the same time interrogating just what it means to truly serve Latinx students."

"As the first to explore Hispanic-Serving Institutions based on actual case studies, Garcia describes not only what is, but also what can be the tremendous potential for institutions that do the nation's work in educating a diverse population. Institutional leaders will find insights and guidance in advancing equity goals."
