In recent years, CSI has implemented initiatives to help UCSB meet its Hispanic Serving Institution mission to improve educational outcomes for Chicano/Latino students. We have taken giant strides towards achieving this goal by conducting HSI workshops at which we collected data from Hispanic students regarding their desired outcomes of this designation. Utilizing students’ feedback, CSI developed a formal mentoring program for first generation ethnic minority undergraduate students, continues to provide a dedicated computer lab for graduate students to facilitate their research progress, expanded our CSI graduate student affiliates group to foster cross discipline discussions and peer review of student lead research, and provided an undergraduate student research lab for faculty and graduate students to work with undergraduate students on research, data collecting, transcription and analysis.
