 HACU Urges its Membership in the U.S. to Help Disseminate HACU’s Platform Issues & Recommendations for Presidential Candidates

On June 26, 2007, the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) sent the 2008 candidates for the presidency of the United States HACU’s Platform Issues & Recommendations for Presidential Candidates.

Candidates were asked for their feedback by July 28, 2007. For a list of candidates, and the status of their response (if any), click here.

HACU-member institutions in the U.S., especially Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs), are asked to do the following on or after August 1, 2007:

1) Post or link to the Issues & Recommendations document on the institution’s Web site.

2) Encourage friends of the institution to convey to presidential candidates their personal support of HACU’s recommendations and ask candidates a specific question regarding their response to the recommendations (or lack thereof).

3) Submit a letter from the institution to each candidate endorsing HACU’s recommendations and ask candidates a specific question regarding their response to the recommendations (or lack thereof).

The seven issues and corresponding recommendations outlined in the document are aimed at eliciting an official response from presidential candidates and influencing public discourse on substantive matters of special interest to Hispanics.

The help of HACU-member institutions and their many friends and supporters will go a long way in raising awareness of Hispanic higher education issues during the presidential campaign and beyond.

We thank you in advance for your support!
