HACU strategic alliances are partnerships and programs that are developed with HACU partners to provide great benefits for our member colleges and universities and HACU. Please note that strategic alliances are limited and do go through a review process. If you would like to inquire about a possible strategic alliance with HACU, please contact the Office of Development, at (210) 692-3805, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our strategic alliances include:
HACU has partnered with Aetna to make more available information about Hispanic health issues and other minority health disparities issues. Aetna has provided a link from http://www.hacu.net/ to its InteliHealth site with the latest health information featuring Harvard Medical School's Consumer Health Information. Additional benefits to HACU members and their students are being planned for 2007.
The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) would like to announce a new partnership with American Student Assistance® (ASA) and their financial literacy and education debt management program called SALT. The program treats student debt as a solvable problem and uses it as an educational vehicle to teach borrowers financial skills. Using student loans and the higher education experience as a series of “teachable moments,” SALT helps students develop competencies that lead to long-term success. SALT combines one-on-one loan counseling with interactive financial education tools and other targeted services (scholarship search, job hunting, internship search) to engage borrowers before they borrow, during school, through repayment—and for life. This partnership will provide the broad framework for cooperation between the two organizations to work towards a shared goal of improving the daily lives and spending habits for all students and young alumni attending HACU member colleges and universities.
ASA would like to offer HACU members a unique opportunity to partner with a non-profit 501(c)(3), mission based organization at a reduced cost and to empower a new generation of educated consumers through solid financial knowledge and positive financial behaviors.

The Taylor Hooton Foundation (THF) was formed in memory of Taylor E. Hooton, a 17-year old high school student athlete from Texas. Taylor took his own life on July 15, 2003, as a result of using anabolic steroids. Taylor’s parents, family and friends founded the organization after learning of the growing number of middle school, high school and college students illegally using and abusing anabolic steroids, over the counter unregulated dietary supplements, HGH (Human Growth Hormone), and other appearance and performance enhancing drugs (APEDs).
Over 1.5 million high school students in the U.S. admit to using anabolic steroids, and those numbers don’t include those who are unknowingly ingesting them through spiked dietary supplements. 85% of our kids report they have never had a parent, teacher, or coach talk with them about the dangers of APEDs.
Start the conversation with your students now. Visit the Taylor Hooton Foundation website, www.taylorhooton.org, to find out how they can help.
