The College Register of the National Hispanic Institute (NHI) is a university membership organization that actively recruits college eligible Latino high school students to enroll in four year institutions. Started in 1990, today the College Register consists of four-year colleges and universities across the United States and Latin America. In addition, these institutions actively participate in NHI’s annual college fairs and receive the academic and extracurricular profiles of NHI student participants. These planned activities and events include six (6) private college fairs and three (3) training programs on college admissions for nearly a total of 1,200 students who attend NHI’s 10th/11th grade initiatives during the summer. College Register members are also eligible to attend Celebración 2017 in McAllen, TX, an annual showcase event conducted during the fall that features 600 award-winning youth selected from among NHI’s total participants. During this event, the College Register also holds its annual member conference and is invited to host special workshops attended by high school counselors and adult community volunteers who are in close contact with students who attend NHI leadership programs.

NHI students are intellectually curious, mature beyond their years, and globally responsible citizens who enrich our campus community.”

“The University of San Diego is proud to host the LDZ Youth Legislative Session. The participants’ level of commitment to the program, and investment in one another’s growth as leaders distinguishes them from other high school students. We were impressed with the NHI students’ strong sense of civic responsibility and our communities are strengthened because of the opportunities and leadership development that NHI provides.”
