System/district membership is for central administrative offices only. It is the system/district that will be considered a member of HACU. Campuses within a member system/district are not considered HACU members, unless the campus itself is a dues-paid member.

HACU offers complimentary membership to any system/district when all the campuses within that system/district are members of HACU.
