LALS Faculty head UIC project to lead new consortium of Hispanic-Serving Institutions

It was recently announced that LALS faculty Amalia Pallares and Maria de los Angeles Torres are among faculty leading this initiative as Principal Investigator and Co-Principal Investigator.

The University of Illinois Chicago will lead a new consortium of 16 Hispanic-Serving Institutions, or HSIs, that have R1 designation — top tier doctoral university with very high research activity — in the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.

The initial launch of the national initiative, which is called “Crossing Latinidades,” is supported by a $150,000 grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to the department of Latin American and Latino studies and the Office of Diversity at UIC.
