UNT is one of the nation’s most diverse universities. We are a majority-minority serving institution, and recently became a Hispanic Serving Institution, exceeding 25% Hispanic student population. Of the Hispanic student population, 37% are Pell Grant eligible. The term “Hispanic-Serving Institution” (HSI) a federal designation, requires that institutions be accredited colleges, enroll a significant proportion of low-income students, and have 25% of their full-time undergraduate student body be Hispanic. There are more than 500 HSI-eligible institutions in the U.S., but only 12 are also a Tier One Research institution as we are at UNT. While they comprise only a small percentage of all institutions of higher education, HSIs enroll about 2/3 of all Hispanic undergraduates in the country.
