  • Summary

    Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) are higher education institutions that serve minority populations.  Among them are Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs), Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs), Asian American and Pacific Islander Serving Institutions (AAPISIs). Because MSI’s are ripe with high quality diverse talent, recruitment professionals include MSIs in their engagement strategies more and more to advance company diversity, equity, and inclusion goals.  In doing so, they have discovered MSIs vary in mission, location, student body profile, and more.
