Why support HACU?

HACU is the nation's only organized voice for Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) and Hispanic students in higher education. HSIs are colleges and universities where total Hispanic student enrollment constitutes a minimum of 25% of the total enrollment. HACU-Member Colleges and Universities enroll over 65% of all Hispanics at colleges and universities today.

What makes HACU unique?

HACU takes a holistic approach to addressing critical issues in Hispanic higher education:

The Nation's Only Organized Voice for HSIs in Washington

HACU has proven a strong national voice on issues that address the importance of educating public and policy makers about increased and better targeted funding for Hispanics in higher education. HACU's Office of Government Relations keeps our membership abreast through action alerts, provides assistance and outreach to HSIs on available federal program grants, and hosts an annual HACU Capitol Forum that brings together the leaders of our membership and Congress.

HNIP - Nation's Largest Internship Program for Hispanic Students

For more than ten years, the nation's largest internship program for Hispanic students known as HACU National Internship Program (HNIP), has placed almost 6,000 talented college students who have demonstrated high levels of academic performance in paid internships with federal agencies and corporations throughout the United States. HACU member institutions are committed to working with partners who are seeking to reach out and diversify their workforces. Students taking advantage of this program give themselves an opportunity to share professional, educational, and intellectual experiences. Visit for more information.
