Hispanic Student Organizations
Oftentimes, college students express feelings of isolation on campus. More specifically, Hispanic/Latino students are usually faced with being in the minority in terms of the student population on campus. In response to these circumstances, student organizations exist as opportunities for involvement for students on campus.
Each school develops organizations and programs unique to their campus where students interact with other students who share the same experiences or interests. These organizations provide a sense of belonging, allow students to develop leadership skills, present opportunities to explore outside interests as well as prepare students for professional and/or academic growth. In particular, Hispanic/Latino student groups can offer all of these benefits as well as promote a sense of community and connection to other students who identify with the experience of being Hispanic/Latino on campus.
The HSF Scholar Chapter Network is one example of such organization available to students on campus. The HSF Scholar Chapters are open to all students on campus and are geared towards the needs of Latino students. HSF has designed a national curriculum for all Scholar Chapters which exists to facilitate the educational and professional success of Latino students by promoting principles and practices of high academic achievement and leadership development. More specifically, HSF Scholar Chapters help students to leverage resources to: 1) succeed in their chosen academic field; 2) develop the pre-professional skills needed in post-degree professional life; 3) serve as mentors and peer resources to younger students.
HSF Scholar Chapters exist on 20 campuses nationwide. If you are interested in finding our more about the Scholar Chapters, please contact Scott Raub at firstname.lastname@example.org.
