Sixth Annual Deans’ Forum on Hispanic Higher Education

"Exemplary Practices: Developing Effective Hispanic Teacher Pathways"


Tuesday, October 31, 2017

8:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. 

The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) invites college and university deans and senior administrators  to participate in the Sixth Annual Deans’ Forum on Hispanic Higher Education. The purpose of this special forum is to provide an opportunity for networking and discussion on issues and opportunities for the academic success of Hispanic students in higher education.

In 2015, over 53.0 million Hispanics resided in the U.S., plus an additional 3.6 million in Puerto Rico. This represents approximately 17.0% of the overall U.S. population. However, only 15.1% of Hispanics have a baccalaureate degree or higher, compared to 35.2% for non-Hispanic whites.

This year’s Deans’ Forum will address the topic "Exemplary Practices: Developing Effective Hispanic Teacher Pathways," focusing on recruiting and retaining Hispanic teachers through institutional support. Presentations and discussions will address effective strategies in teacher recruitment and preparation. Institutional and systemic factors that affect teacher success will also be discussed. Expert practitioners and scholars will share perspectives on ensuring teacher diversity that reflects the growing Latino student population.

Please see below a tentative agenda for the Sixth Annual Deans' Forum, a post-conference event of the 31st Annual Conference. Details about the 2017 Forum will be published here as they become available.
