HACU delegation of Central American university representatives visit U.S. campuses
The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) has partnered with the U.S. Embassy in Costa Rica and the Department of State to arrange U.S. university tours for representatives from Central American public and private universities. The purpose of the program is to explore and increase ties among higher education institutions in support of President Obama’s 100,000 Strong in the Americas Initiative. The main focus is the exchange of students among institutions.
From Oct.7-16, representatives from El Salvador, Costa Rica, Honduras, and Nicaragua will participate in campus tour activities that may include: meetings to discuss: internationalization issues at the administration level, student and faculty exchanges, Memorandums of Understanding, specific study abroad opportunities and requirements of host institutions, faculty exchanges in specific fields/ possible joint research projects as well as other areas of collaboration.
The tours, which began after HACU’s Annual Conference in Denver, includes two campus visits in the Denver area, four in Northern California area (San Francisco), four in Southern California area (Los Angeles), and ends with two in San Antonio.
