Emerging Leaders' Summit 

Our Emerging Leaders' Summits, presented in a dynamic hybrid format, combine regional in-person and virtual sessions. These summits are designed for students from HACU-member institutions seeking to unleash their leadership potential. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in intensive workshops and panel discussions focused on leadership development and career readiness. Additionally, students will have the chance to connect with HACU's partners, who will be actively networking and recruiting for internship opportunities. Highlighting the summit experience, two fortunate attendees will be selected through a raffle to attend the ¡Adelante! Leadership Institute (Student Track) at the 38th Annual HACU Conference in Aurora, Colorado, from November 1-3, 2024.
