All UCSB Latino/a/x graduate students are invited to participate in a 60-90 minute focus group with other graduate students. Focus groups will discuss whether students are aware of UCSB's institutional designation as a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) and what impact this has on graduate students.

This study will help determine what UCSB’s Hispanic-Serving Institution designation means for Latino/a/x graduate students. The experiences and insights of graduate students regarding UCSB’s HSI designation are an important resource for institutional planning and improving opportunities for all students.

Participant identities will remain confidential. Participants will receive a $20 gift card for their participation.

If you would like to participate in this study and are a UCSB Latino/a/x graduate student who is 18 years or older, please email with the subject line “HSI Participant” and include your name in the message. You will get an email with a doodle poll to provide your availability for a focus group.
