Abstract

This manuscript examines the number of Hispanic individuals who serve as presidents or chancellor and the type of institutions they serve. In 2001, only 13 states had institutions in which the president or chancellor was Latina/o. By 2006, that number had increased to 22. Both in 2001 and 2006, 61% of all Latina/o CEOs served in associate's degree institutions. Of the l80 Hispanic-serving institutions in the continental United States that were members of HACU in 2007, only 56, or 31%, had Latina/o CEOs.
