Colleges among those supporting undergraduate leadership development at HACU’s ¡Adelante! Leadership Institute

The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities and its partners will bring together undergraduate students from across the country for an opportunity to receive essential leadership development at the ¡Adelante! Leadership Institute. The Institute is being offered virtually, Oct. 25-28, 2020, as part of HACU’s 34th Annual Conference. Many of the students attending are being sponsored by their institutions, as part of a Presidents’ Challenge to sponsor five or more students to attend.

Throughout this four-day event, students will have the opportunity to attend 16 professional development workshops, three networking panels and various other opportunities to engage with HACU partners from the federal and corporate sectors. This institute is designed to empower students with the career & leadership skills necessary for student success beyond graduation.
