The purpose of the CMRD Hispanic/Latinx (HLx) Survey and report is to deepen our understanding of the profile and needs of Sam Houston State University’s (SHSU) unique HLx student population. Rather than extrapolating information about our HLx population from broader demographic data and trends in higher education, we have dedicated resources to collect a comprehensive and detailed survey corpus from nearly 700 SHSU undergraduate and graduate students who self-identify as HLx. The high participant response rate is indicative of this population’s desire for their voices to be heard as a key constituency at SHSU. We are confident that our findings about students’ backgrounds, experiences, and needs will be important to providing the best possible support and services to HLx students as this population continues to grow at SHSU.
