Started in 1990, the College Register of the National Hispanic Institute (NHI) is a membership organization comprised of colleges that actively recruit college-eligible Latino high school students to enroll in their four-year institutions. These colleges and universities actively participate in NHI’s college fairs and receive the academic and extracurricular profiles of NHI student participants as well as a list of NHI graduating seniors, and research conducted by the National Hispanic Institute with our graduating high school seniors. Today, the College Register consists of four-year colleges and universities from across the United States.

The College Register’s planned events for Summer 2020 include two (2) private digital college fairs, powered by Gamma Iota Sigma and two (2) college admissions training programs for the nearly 2,000 students who will attend NHI’s 2020 10th/11th grade initiatives during the summer. College Register members are also eligible to attend Celebración 2020, an annual showcase event that features 500 award-winning youth selected from NHI’s annual summer participants. During this event, the College Register holds its annual meeting and hosts special workshops attended by parents, high school counselors, and community volunteers who work closely with NHI students.

Membership Feedback:

“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.”
