HACU’s Annual Conference on Hispanic higher education to take place in San Diego, Oct. 28-30, 2017

The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities’ (HACU) 31st Annual Conference taking place this fall in San Diego, Calif., will feature more than 50 workshops under six tracks, with several workshops highlighting projects at colleges and universities focused on enhancing the success of not just students but faculty and administrators as well as the higher education institution itself. All workshops are part of HACU’s premier conference on Hispanic higher education, Oct. 28-30, 2017, at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront.

The sessions also address other issues of importance to Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs), such as study abroad, STEM, grant writing, federal funding opportunities, and best practices from HSIs, emerging HSIs, Hispanic-Serving School Districts, and institutions and organizations dedicated to serving Hispanic and other minority student populations.

A Student Track is regularly offered at the Annual Conference as a three day career development and networking symposium designed to build the career skills of undergraduate students. Over 400 students attend panel presentations, workshops, luncheons, and a town hall meeting and also meet with conference exhibitors and recruiters each year. Scholarships, as well as sponsorships from corporate, federal, and nonprofit organizations, are available for students. Click here for more information on the Student Track.

Pre-and post-conference events are also planned. Advertising, exhibitor and sponsorship/partnership opportunities are available. Registration online for conference and pre and post events, here.

Early bird rates available through May 31.
