The HACU Student Success Symposium is a follow-up event from an initial Student Success Collaborative that paired two community colleges, two four-year public institutions and two four-year private institutions, all Hispanic-Serving Institutions, in an institutional mentoring program. The aim was for institutions to learn from each other how to better retain and graduate Hispanic students. The original program also involved six Historically Black Colleges and Universities and six Tribal Colleges and Universities in similar mentoring pairs, and offered opportunities for all three sectors to learn from each other.
