CAHSI Selected as Finalist for Examples of Excelencia
September 13, 2010 | UNIVERSITY COMMUNICATIONS
The University of Texas at El Paso's Computing Alliance of Hispanic-Serving Institutions (CAHSI) has been named a finalist for the Examples of Excelencia at the Baccalaureate level.
Examples of Excelencia was conceived and implemented in 2005 to identify and recognize promising practices accelerating Latino student achievement within colleges and universities. Since then, more than 150 programs and departments from institutions of higher education across the country have been nominated for their practices to improve Latino college achievement.
As a Finalist, CAHSI's profile will be included in the 2010 edition of What Works for Latino Students in Higher Education: Examples of Excelencia Compendium. CAHSI will also be included in Excelencia's Growing What Works database and will be part of their national campaign to promote the use of effective institutional practices with real evidence of supporting greater numbers of Latino students earning higher educational degrees.
The winners will be named on Wednesday, September 29 at the 5th annual Celebración de Excelencia to be held at the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center in the Congressional Auditorium. At this event, Excelencia in Education will announce the 2010 Examples of Excelencia at the associate, baccalaureate and graduate levels.
