Annual Conference Objectives

HACU’s Annual Conference provides a unique forum for the sharing of information and ideas for the best and most promising practices in the education of Hispanics. The conference goals are to:

  • showcase successful, effective, and exemplary programs and initiatives of HACU member institutions 
  • promote and expand partnerships and strategic alliances for collaboration between HACU member institutions and public-
    and private-sector organizations
  • foster and identify graduate education opportunities for Hispanic students and graduates
  • deliberate policy issues affecting the education opportunities of Hispanics, including HACU’s legislative agenda
  • promote greater Hispanic participation in scholarships, fellowships, internships and other such programs funded
    by private and government organizations 
  • discuss emerging trends in higher education affecting Hispanics and HSIs, e.g., distance learning, student-centered
    learning, outcomes assessment, and cross-national accreditation

The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities recognizes that the health and safety of all conference attendees is our top priority. The CDC, the State of California and San Diego County recommend that people attending conferences take whatever precautions they need to protect their health during the COVID-19 pandemic. HACU will have hand sanitizer stations available on site and masks are available to anyone who would like to wear one.

There are no government requirements for attendees at this time, but we ask everyone to be respectful of others and to refrain from attending the meeting if you feel ill or have tested positive for COVID-19.

 As of 6/6/22
