The University of Tampa will host the National Hispanic Institute’s (NHI) International Collegiate World Series for the third time from July 13-17.
Approximately 130 students from the
Dominican Republic, Mexico, Panama,
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.
The NHI has approximately 90,000 alumni with approximately 98.1 percent of NHI participants going on to college. Approximately 27 percent of these individuals enroll outside of their home country or state.
The NHI is focused on providing young people with opportunities in leadership over a course of eight years that begins in high school.
