2021 HACU Leadership Academy/La Academia de Liderazgo application deadline extended

The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities has extended the deadline for applications for the third cohort of its Leadership Academy/La Academia de Liderazgo through April 2, 2021. The Leadership program prepares senior higher education administrators for top leadership roles at Hispanic-Serving Institutions, emerging HSIs and other institutions of higher learning.

“The HACU Leadership Academy/La Academia de Liderazgo is committed to increasing the number of diverse candidates to serve as the next generation of leaders at colleges and universities across the nation,” said Antonio R. Flores, president and CEO of HACU. “We are very pleased that several of our inaugural fellows are already serving as presidents and in other leadership positions since the inception of the program. We are fortunate to have a faculty that is deeply committed to ensuring these fellows are prepared to serve in leadership roles.”

The one-year fellowship program includes an orientation, webinars and three seminars. Orientation will be held on October 20, 2021. The first seminar will be held in Aurora, Colorado in October 2021, in conjunction with HACU’s Annual Conference. The second seminar will be held in Washington, D.C., in April 2022, at HACU’s Capitol Forum. The third seminar will be an international seminar to be held in the spring or summer of 2022.

HACU fellows work at colleges and universities nationwide. The Leadership Academy faculty includes a select cadre of current and former presidents, chancellors and senior administrators. The team of experts with over 100 years of combined experience, has served in many sectors of higher education including private/public universities, community colleges and faith-based institutions. 

Fellows will be chosen for the 2021 cohort through a competitive application process. Information on the program, application process and frequently asked questions are available on the program website.
