Puerto Rico, the U.S. and other nations are expected to participate. The university is one of several institutions in the U.S. and Latin America that partners with the NHI.
“We’re preparing young people for global leadership, throughout the Americas, that factors in what we’ll need in 20 or 30 years, not just today,” NHI President Ernesto Nieto said.
Collegiate World Series
will be focused on preparing participating students for higher levels of education at the college and university level. There will also be a focus on critical thinking and addressing the issues that are affecting Latino communities. This includes challenging stereotypes and assumptions.
