Hispanics are the fastest growing demographic in America.  They represent 18% of the population now, and are projected to represent 30% of the population by the year 2050.  However, they receive only 9% of the STEM degrees awarded, and account for only 7% of the America’s STEM workforce.  This discrepancy represents a significant gap – in achievement, in lost potential, in economic opportunity, in workready employees for industry – that places our country at risk.

What accounts for this gap, and how may it be addressed?  The HSI:URBANO Conference will explore these issues.  The Welcome and Opening Remarks will present the Conference’s Charge, which requires it to explore these issues and consider possible interventions to address them.
