HACU announces Enlace Mid-Level Leadership program to help increase Hispanic representation in leadership positions at HSIs

SAN ANTONIO – The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities has announced the launch of the Enlace Mid-Level Leadership program, targeted to develop mid-management leaders in higher education. The program is especially designed to help increase Hispanic representation in leadership positions at Hispanic-Serving Institutions.

The Enlace Mid-Level Leadership program is a six-month development experience for college and university professionals serving around the mid-level of their organizations. Academic leaders or non-academic support personnel within the structure of higher education organizations are encouraged to apply.
 
The Program will cover areas beneficial to participants and their home institutions, such as academic and student affairs management, regional institutional accreditation, higher education advocacy issues, diversity, equity, and inclusion. Participants will also interact with professional search firm partners.
  
The six-month program will begin with a one-day in-person session in Chicago, prior to HACU’s Annual Conference in October 2023. Participants attend the conference as part of the program requirements and complete four, two-hour online sessions in November, December, February, and March. The final in-person session will take place in the spring of April 2024 in Washington, D.C., where participants also attend the Annual National Capitol Forum on Hispanic Higher Education.
 
Information on the program, cost and application process are available on the program website. Applications and nominations can be made here. 

The application process will close on March 31, 2023, and the selected participants will be notified by April 28, 2023.
