Hispanic Policy Network

HPN

The Hispanic Policy Network is an organization for Faculty and Staff committed to the advancement of Hispanics in higher education. While membership is primarily for Texas State Hispanic Faculty and Staff, we welcome undergraduate and graduate students to attend our general meetings and participate in HPN sponsored events.


Bienvenidos


Our Goals:

  • Educational Advocacy to articulate educational concerns, needs and issues whereby the University as a whole becomes more fully aware of the presence and contributions of Hispanics.
  • Networking to engage actively in network-building with staff, faculty, and students for the purpose of securing changes in policies and procedures HPN deems important to its constituents. HPN is also actively engaged in community affairs.
  • Recruitment/Retention to assist in maintaining effective institutional programs to recruit and retain a diverse staff, faculty, and student population. HPN also serves as a resource on information regarding Hispanics.
  • Scholarship Assistance provide financial assistance to incoming and existing Hispanic students in order for them to complete their educational journey at Texas State.
  • Culture Promotion to assist in the promotion of Hispanic history and culture for educational and public information purposes.
  • Working Atmosphere to advocate a safe and beneficial working environment for all Hispanic staff, faculty and students.

 

The Hispanic Policy Network faculty and staff encourage students to seek a mentorship relationship with our members. We are dedicated to your academic success. If you'd like to be paired with an HPN member as a mentor, please email us at hpnetwork@txstate.edu
