LSCPA is a designated Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI)

The Title V Hispanic Serving Institution grant is a five-year, federal competitive grant for eligible Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSI) and is directed by the Department of Education’s Office of Post-Secondary Education. The Title V HSI Grant assists with strengthening institutional programs, facilities, and services to expand the educational opportunities for Hispanic Americans and other underrepresented populations.

Pathway to Excellence - "Camino a la Excelencia"

The LSCPA Title V Grant project, Pathway to Excellence, expands upon the College's mission as a learning-centered institution that embraces academic excellence by providing multiple pathways to student success. The Pathway to Excellence project is comprised of two main goals, to increase access to higher education and student success in higher education, for all students in the community. A particular focus is placed on Hispanic, low-income and first generation (high-need) students at critical points in the 2-year and 4-year pipeline.
