About the HACU Alumni Association (HAA)

Whether you're a student or a seasoned professional, HACU's Alumni Association offers exactly what you need to succeed.  Network with your peers, take part in professional development events, and learn about the benefits of becoming and active alumnus.

HACU Alumni Association (HAA)

HAA:  The HACU Alumni Association (HAA) was founded in 1997 by individuals who directly benefited from HACU’s educational programs. There have been thousands of students who have participated in the HACU National Internship Program (HNIP) along with other HACU student programs since 1992. Today, the HAA boasts over 900 members and serves as a professional network for HACU alumni and current interns and promotes leadership and service for the greater Hispanic community.

We encourage you to remain connected with HACU beyond your internship!
