HACU celebrates its Silver Anniversary in 2011
HACU will celebrate its silver anniversary in 2011 with various conferences and events scheduled throughout the year. The following are events planned during the spring and fall semesters:
At the end of February, HACU will be in San Juan, Puerto Rico to host an International Conference, “Building Bridges for Cooperation in International Education.” The conference, taking place Feb. 23-25, will provide an opportunity to highlight the latest trends, model programs, research and cutting-edge issues of importance to the international Hispanic higher education community.
At the beginning of April, HACU will convene in Washington, D.C., for its National Capitol Forum on Hispanic Higher Education. The April 4-5 gathering will provide a forum for individuals and institutions to advocate on behalf of Hispanic higher education and play an active role in shaping and promoting an agenda for members of the newly-elected 112th Congress. The second day of the Capitol Forum will include visits to Capitol Hill with some delegations being led by college presidents and leaders of higher education institutions.
During the fall semester, HACU will celebrate its 25th annual conference in San Antonio, Texas, where the association was founded in 1986. A preconference event on Oct. 29 will kick off conference activities with HACU’s 10th Annual Latino Higher Education Leadership Institute. The Institute will provide a dynamic forum including speakers, panels, a career networking workshop, and small group discussions. HACU’s 25th Annual Conference, “25 Years of Championing Hispanic Higher Education,” Oct. 29-31, will provide a unique forum for the sharing of information and ideas for the best and most promising practices in the education of Hispanics. HACU’s 25th Anniversary Gala will take place on the last day of the conference. Tables and individual tickets to the gala are available.
