CAHSI INCLUDES PILOTS

The purpose of the CAHSI INCLUDES launch pilot is to establish a unified approach across different sectors that will both build upon proven practices and identify novel approaches leading to significant increases in the number of Hispanic graduates who possess the skills needed to meet our nation’s workforce demand for scientists, engineers, and computer scientists. Each regional cluster brings its own assets, resources, and expertise to the alliance. The project aims to determine the impact of building strong student identity, student belonging, advocacy, and preparation on accelerating the number of students entering, persisting in the major, and considering and entering graduate studies.
