Mills College, Oakland university steeped in history, is closing
Mills was the first women’s college to offer a cs major in 1974, the first and only women's college to reverse a decision to go co-ed in 1990 and the first single-sex college to adopt an admissions policy welcoming transgender students in 2014.

WOW! there are more HSI's than I thought there was.

I'm surprised PVAM and Texas Southern don't qualify as well. Can you be an HBCU and a HSI at the same time?

Yes.  HBCU is a designation from the Higher Ed Act of 1965.  The HSI designation is based only on the proportion of Hispanic/Latino/Latinx students at the institution.

Women of color felt safe at Mills College. They say its closure could be dangerous for future generations.
