Mercy College President Tim Hall was recently named to Excelencia in Education’s list of 2016 Presidents for Latino Student Success.

 

Excelencia chose college and university presidents for their list based on how they have made the commitment to building national momentum to achieve a collective goal of making this country stronger with the talents, skills and contributions of great numbers of Latino college graduates.

 

Mercy College is recognized by the White House as a “Bright Spot” in Hispanic Education, a recognition Hall is thrilled to receive. “In a time when too few students graduate college, particularly those most at risk due to family income, Mercy College is finding solutions to help more students succeed. We believe that we can do more to help our students succeed than we thought we could a generation ago. Students succeed when we raise our expectations and when we raise our level of support for those expectations,” said Hall.

 

Additionally, the College recently received a $4,029,506 grant as a Hispanic-serving institution to support Hispanic and low-income students in STEM.
