The HSI awards are given by Angeles Investors to find, fund and grow the most promising Hispanic and Latinx ventures.
Angeles Investors is the nation’s most prominent and largest group of Hispanic and Latinx angel investors and entrepreneurs.
The award was presented last month in Chicago at a celebration and investors conference.
Scott Koskoski, Caldwell’s vice president for philanthropy and engagement, said the school was honored to be selected.
“As a Hispanic-Serving Institution, Caldwell is proud to support students from many Hispanic cultures and backgrounds in their educational endeavors,” he said. “We were delighted to be among a group of such prestigious universities that are leading in supporting Hispanic leadership and forward-thinking ventures.”
Ivonne Valdes, Class of 1980, a member of the university’s board of trustees, nominated Caldwell for an HSI Impact Award.
“I am excited to have my alma mater recognized,” she said. “Caldwell University is an institution that encourages critical thinking, a global mindset and community and social involvement.”
