Alliance for Hispanic Education

The Alliance for Hispanic Education

The Alliance for Hispanic Education is a NHCLC recognized group of Christ-centered colleges, universities, and institutions who are wholly committed to seeing the next generation of Hispanic leaders enter their classrooms, thrive spiritually and academically, and graduate in four to six years.

The Alliance for Hispanic Education exists to significantly increase Hispanic college graduation rates by establishing strategic partnerships between Hispanic Evangelical churches and Christ-centered colleges and universities. Member institutions of the Alliance for Hispanic Education provide Hispanic-focused scholarships to students, think strategically and creatively about how to recruit and retain Hispanic students, and most importantly evaluate Hispanic student achievement in connection with spiritual growth and college graduation.

History and Purpose

In 2008, the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, America’s largest Hispanic Christian and Evangelical organization, the Hispanic National Association of Evangelicals, approved a resolution identifying education and addressing the disparity in the community as one of the priorities for the 40,118 member churches.  As a result, the association approved the formation of a subsidiary, The Alliance for Hispanic Education, for the purpose of facilitating a messaging and mobilization platform in order to address the aforementioned challenges while simultaneously offering viable solutions.

In addition, via a partnership with the Jesse Miranda Center, the Alliance identified three areas that pose challenges and opportunities; recruitment, retention, and graduation, financial sustainability, and ethno-cultural contextualization. With support from original Alliance members such as Oral Roberts, Regent, Gordon Conwell, Indiana Wesleyan and Liberty Universities, this historic summit, now the National Hispanic Education Summit, emerged as an opportunity to convene the leaders of Christ-centered institutions of higher learning in order to discuss challenges and effectively offer solutions that will engage the Evangelical and the Christian community at large as advocates of Hispanic student achievement.
