The Office of International Affairs promotes and facilitates international initiatives involving HACU member institutions. HACU provides study abroad opportunities for students through its agreements with various study abroad providers, including: Global Learning Semesters, the American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS), Semester at Sea, School for International Training, and IES Abroad.

HACU has collaborated with several partners on the development of joint student exchange programs and with U.S. Embassies to establish bilateral international collaboration initiatives with institutions of higher education in several Latin American countries. HACU is committed to expanding international opportunities for students and faculty from its member institutions.

HACU's International Faculty Exchange is a connection point between our member institutions, both national and international, to connect with faculty across the globe who are interested in working abroad for a limited time. Facilitated via our ProTalento Job Board, faculty can apply directly to opportunities as they are posted by host institutions. To post or view exchange positions, please click HERE.
