Whereas Hispanic-Serving Institutions play an important role in educating many

Whereas more than 350 Hispanic-Serving Institutions operate in the United 
Whereas Hispanic-Serving Institutions serve more than half, or 56 percent, of 
        all Hispanic students, enrolling more than 1,480,000 students in 2011;
Whereas Hispanic-Serving Institutions are actively involved in stabilizing and 
        improving the communities in which the institutions are located;
Whereas celebrating the vast contributions of Hispanic-Serving Institutions to 
        the United States strengthens the culture of the United States; and
Whereas the achievements and goals of Hispanic-Serving Institutions deserve 
        national recognition: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the Senate--
            (1) recognizes the achievements and goals of Hispanic-
        Serving Institutions across the United States;
            (2) designates the week beginning September 15, 2013, as

        groups to observe the week with appropriate ceremonies, 
        activities, and programs to demonstrate support for Hispanic-
