The Community College of Aurora was designated a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) in 2016. To receive this designation, institutions must have an undergraduate Hispanic full-time equivalent student enrollment of 25 percent or more. At CCA, more than 30 percent of the student population identifies as Latinx, and about 1 in 16 students who graduate are Latinx students.
As an HSI designated institution, CCA can apply for federal grant funding to assist in strengthening and expanding our programs, facilities, and services for Latinx students and other minoritized populations.
While the term Hispanic is used in the designation, Latinx is the more commonly term used at CCA. Hispanic is a government-designated term used in the U.S. to refer to people of origin or ancestry from Spanish-speaking countries. Latinx is the term that affirms people who do not identify in the gender-binary of the Spanish language. Language and geographic location are what separate Hispanic from Latinx.
At CCA, we work diligently to offer academic services, financial aid, and co-curricular events to our Latinx and other minoritized students.
