The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) recognizes Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) annually as “Fulbright HSI Leaders” for their noteworthy engagement with the Fulbright Program. This initiative is part of the U.S. State Department’s long-standing commitment to continue to build diversity and inclusion within the Fulbright Program and all the Bureau’s international exchange programs. ECA established this designation in 2021 to acknowledge the strong partnerships between the Fulbright Program and HSIs, and to encourage all HSIs to increase their Fulbright engagement on campus. Having strong HSI participation in the U.S. government’s flagship international exchange program is critical to fully representing the diversity of the United States through the Program.
The 2022 Fulbright HSI Leaders were announced by ECA Deputy Assistant Secretary for Academic Programs Ethan Rosenzweig on October 10, 2022, during the annual conference of the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU).
