ASHE seeks to promote the vitality of Hispanics in the economics profession through education, service, and excellence.

The American Society of Hispanic Economists (ASHE) is a professional association of economists who are concerned with the under-representation of Hispanic Americans in the economics profession at a time when Hispanics represent over 16 percent of the United States ‘ population. Our primary goals include:

• Promoting the vitality of Hispanics in the economics profession through education, service, and excellence;

• Promoting rigorous research on economic and policy issues affecting U.S. Hispanic communities and the nation as a whole; and

• Engaging more Hispanic Americans to effectively participate in the economics profession.

Please see our Institutional Members Directory for more information about each institution below.

Even with significantly smaller graduate programs, sociology produces significantly more Black and Hispanic PhDs.
Very insightful comparison of graduate program diversity using IPEDS data by @chris_roudiez.
