Lone Star College partners with consortium to promote Hispanic student success

Lone Star College and Hispanic Educational Technology Services (HETS) have teamed up to enhance Hispanic student success and opportunities in higher education.

“This is a great opportunity for students and faculty to be connected to a wealth of resources to support the pursuit of a variety of  academic and career goals,” said Dr. Alicia-Harvey Smith, LSC executive vice chancellor. “I am excited about this collaboration and am looking forward to hearing many success stories.”

HETS was established in 1993 and is the first bilingual consortium founded by more than 40 higher education institutions in Puerto Rico, United States and Latin America. HETS member institutions are comprised by nearly 25,000 faculty members and serve over 770,000 students, of which approximately 60 percent are Hispanic.

HETS focuses on three strategic areas; access, retention and technology integration. These help promote and advance innovation, leadership and opportunities in Hispanic higher education.

“Lone Star College remains committed to providing high-quality academic and workforce programs,” said Harvey-Smith.

From 2012 to 2017, HETS developed a series of programs and services to continue growing opportunities in Hispanic higher education and further promote leadership and innovation. Through these programs and services, HETS promoted research and key issues in Hispanic higher education; directly impacted student and faculty; fostered ongoing learning and development; and established key partnerships and alliances to further impact education and foster innovation.
