The public is invited and comments are encouraged at the Nov. 30 meeting of the Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) Task Force.
The meeting will run from 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. in St. Cajetan’s and feature presentations from the six HSI subcommittees that have been working since August.
“The controversy surrounding Metro State’s HSI initiative can be better understood by attending and participating in this task force meeting,” said Co-chair Luis Torres. “If the HSI initiative is successful, it will be because faculty and staff drive it, which is why we need their input.”
Faculty, staff and students who would like to speak during the feedback session need to sign up on the sheet that will be available at the reception table. Also, comments can be written on an index card and turned in at the table.
