HACU president and CEO visits two campuses in California ahead of Annual Conference

The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities President and CEO Antonio R. Flores visited two universities in the San Diego area, ahead of HACU’s 36th Annual Conference taking place Oct. 8-10, 2022, in San Diego, Calif.

On Oct. 5, Flores spoke at a HACU on the Road luncheon hosted by the University of San Diego. His presentation provided an outlook about Hispanics in education and workforce, and how HACU’s advocacy, programs and services provide support for Hispanic-Serving Institutions and the students they serve.

USD held a Campus Forum showcasing a fire side chat with its president James T. Harris III and Flores, where they discussed best practices for HSIs. With the USD approaching the 25% threshold, the HSI designation was also a topic of discussion. Attendees included USD faculty, USD HSI council, and student leaders from the university.

Flores will visit the University of California Riverside on Oct. 7 to meet with Chancellor Kim Wilcox and participate in a roundtable discussion on HSIs.
