Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) Civil Rights OverviewBeginning in fiscal year 2022, NIFA’s Civil Rights and Equal Opportunity office is expanding its grantee civil rights compliance review program to include Hispanic-serving institutions. This webinar will introduce NIFA’s civil rights staff and explain our civil rights compliance review process, including the overall purpose and goals of a civil rights review, the stages and timeline of a review, and the content of the different civil rights review areas. This webinar is open to your institution’s diversity and inclusion officer, Title IX coordinator, and/or federal compliance specialist to learn how NIFA will be ensuring civil rights compliance by, and providing technical assistance to, NIFA-funded Hispanic-serving institutions moving forward.
