SAN ANTONIO – The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities has announced applications are being accepted for the fifth cohort of its Leadership Academy/La Academia de Liderazgo. The Leadership program prepares senior higher education administrators at colleges and universities nationwide for top leadership roles at Hispanic-Serving Institutions, emerging HSIs and other institutions of higher learning. Applications have an extended deadline that will be accepted through April 28, 2023, with selected participants notified on May 19, 2023.

“The HACU Leadership Academy/La Academia de Liderazgo aims to fill a pipeline of higher education leaders needed to increase minority representation in leaders at colleges and universities across the nation,” said HACU President and CEO Antonio R.

The one-year fellowship program includes webinars and three seminars. The first seminar will be held in Chicago, Illinois in Oct. 2023, in conjunction with HACU’s Annual Conference. The second seminar will be held in Washington, D.C., in April 2024, at HACU’s National Capitol Forum.
