Thursday, October 28, 2021

11:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.  CST

The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) invites college and university deans and senior administrators  to participate in the virtual 10th Annual Deans’ Forum on Hispanic Higher Education. This dynamic forum provides an opportunity for participants to build relationships and share ideas that can have a lasting impact on Hispanic higher education and your campuses.

In 2019, 60.6 million Hispanics resided in the U.S and 3.2 million lived in Puerto Rico. This represents approximately 18.5% of the overall U.S. population. Yet, as of 2019, 22.5% of the total U.S.  adult population (aged 25+) held a bachelor’s degree compared to just 13.1% of the U.S. Hispanic population.

The Deans' Forum focuses on bringing diverse perspectives from renowned speakers who have hands on experience in implementing innovative and creative practices in educating Hispanic and other underrepresented minorities. Participants will not only have an opportunity to engage in dialogue with our panel of experts but will also be able to network and learn from each other.

Below please find a tentative agenda for the virtual Tenth Annual Deans' Forum, a post-conference event of the virtual 34th Annual Conference. Additional details about the 2020 deans' Forum will be published here as they become available.
