The Hispanic College Institute - HCI

Hosted by Virginia Tech

June 28 - July 1, 2018


Hispanic College Institute (HCI)

At the Hispanic College Institute, approximately 150 Hispanic high school
students come together on the campus of Virginia State University in this four-day, three-night pre-college empowerment program where they will learn to overcome both real and perceived barriers to college access. The students will participate in a STEM day, college and career workshops, connect with Hispanic professionals, meet college admissions officers, learn about conflict management and civic engagement, interact with near- peer mentors, listen to inspirational speakers, and compete for scholarships. Throughout the on-campus experience, the students will build their confidence and receive practical tools to help them along their pathway to college. For more information, please contact us
