The Hispanic Theological Initiative’s (HTI) mission is cultivating Latine PhD students for leadership positions in the academy, the church, and the world. With the support of the 23 Consortium member institutions, the mission and vision of HTI revolve around three major goals: 


Increase the recruitment, retention, and graduation rates of Latine PhD students across the nation by uniting and leveraging institutional resources (human, financial, and infrastructural).


Increase the presence of Latine leaders and faculty–especially, tenured faculty in seminaries, schools of theology, and universities.


Provide a forum for exchange of information, ideas, and best practices to engage the contributions of Latine faculty and students in theological and religious education.
