Congressman Ruben Gallego released the following statement:
“These three colleges have been designated Hispanic Serving Institutions (HIS) – they provide higher education for low income, sometimes first generation Hispanics who are looking to get a degree and move ahead.  The Hispanic Serving Institutions Program Grants   will help all three institutions improve their academic program, and institutional stability. The grants will allow the three schools to provide the necessary tools and resources to support different kinds of learning, expand opportunities for Hispanic students and increase the rate of course/degree completion.

“I want to Congratulate Phoenix College, Glendale Community College and Gateway College for their hard work and commitment to expanding opportunities for young Hispanics and giving them the educational opportunities they needed to succeed.”
