Cabrini University Named College of the Year by the National Hispanic Institute (NHI) during the organization’s annual Celebración event in McAllen, Texas.
Cabrini received the award for being one of the organization’s strongest partners and for recognizing the importance and impact of NHI’s mission on the University’s campus.
In 2014, Cabrini established its partnership with NHI when Donald B. Taylor, Ph.D. began his tenure as President of Cabrini.
“The partnership between Cabrini and NHI was a natural fit, built upon a common mission to cultivate leaders and make a college degree more accessible,” said Taylor. “We are honored to receive this award and look forward to our continued work together.”
For the past three years, Cabrini has hosted NHI for its annual Collegiate World Series, a five-day program that provides high-achieving Latino students from across the U.S., Mexico, and the Dominican Republic insight into the college admissions process, financial aid, and strategic planning for personal and professional success.
“As the University continues on its pathway to become a Hispanic Serving Institution, our work with NHI has created a solid foundation to build essential relationships with the Hispanic community,” said Taylor.
As NHI’s showcase event, Celebración is a four-day experience for high school and undergraduate students to introduce them to community social entrepreneurship as part of their continued involvement in leadership training. The event culminates with an awards ceremony. ~ from a Cabrini University press release
