In the fall of 2018, Chancellor Christ announced that UC Berkeley would begin the process of becoming a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI). One of the boldest goals in the campus’ strategic plan(link is external), the university seeks to become a HSI by 2027, joining five other UC campuses with that distinction. In June 2019, Chancellor Christ established a HSI Task Force charged with developing a blueprint establishing UC Berkeley as a HSI. In December 2020, the HSI Task Force Report(PDF file) was presented to Chancellor Christ.
