Hispanic-Serving Institution Leaders in Washington D.C. 

The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) joined the President’s Alliance on Higher Education for a day of action to advocate for a bipartisan legislative solution to protect Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, undocumented students, and other Dreamers.

Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) leaders were in Washington D.C. for meetings on Capitol Hill and with White House officials. Among the many HSIs in attendance, HACU welcomed Our Lady of the Lake University, Phoenix College, Chandler-Gilbert Community College, and Marymount University. While in Washington D.C. the leaders met with Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona.

Earlier this month, HACU sent a letter to the leadership of Congress and the Senate Judiciary Committee, and the House Judiciary Committee urging the passage of the Dream Act before the end of the year.

HACU also issued a call to action to its members and supporters to contact Members of Congress to urge them to pass the Dream Act.
