Hispanic Policy Network
The Hispanic Policy Network is an organization for Faculty and Staff committed to the advancement of Hispanic/Latinx individuals in post-secondary education.
While membership is primarily for Texas State Hispanic Faculty and Staff, we extend Official Membership to Graduate Students employed by Texas State, and welcome undergraduate to attend our general meetings and participate in HPN sponsored events. HPN has made a firm commitment to not collect dues from individuals who are exclusively students (i.e. undergraduate students and graduate students who are not employed with Texas State).
HPN 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
