HACU on the Road national tour heads to San Antonio
“State of Hispanic higher education” to be discussed at OLLU
HACU will bring its nationwide HACU on the Road tour home to San Antonio on Feb. 18. Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU), a founding institution of HACU, will host the event on its campus for invited participants. Approximately 30 leaders from the San Antonio-area are among those expected to attend this important luncheon gathering.
City of San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro presented a proclamation to HACU proclaiming Feb. 18, 2010 as “HACU on the Road Day,” in recognition of this initiative designed to promote national and international dialogue about the "State of Hispanic higher education."
The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) was established in 1986 with a founding membership of 18 institutions. Today, HACU represents approximately 450 colleges and universities committed to Hispanic higher education success in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Latin America, Spain and Portugal. HACU is the only national association representing existing and emerging Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs).
HACU will celebrate its 25th Anniversary when it hosts its annual conference in San Antonio, Texas, October 29-31, 2011.
