In an effort to increase diverse representation in senior and executive positions in higher education, the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) introduced the new Leadership Academy Fellows.
Grant recipients will participate in a variety of leadership development activities focused on higher education institutions, with a special emphasis on those institutions serving Hispanics and emerging HSIs.
Lasting one year, the program includes the following seminars:
- Virtual orientation on September 21, 2022.
- The first seminar will be held in October 2022 in conjunction with the 36th Annual HACU Conference.
- The second seminar will be held in Washington, D.C., in April 2023, at the HACU National Capitol Forum.
- The third seminar will take place at an international seminar to be held in the spring or summer of 2023.
Current and former presidents, chancellors, and senior administrators are part of the Academy's faculty, a group that brings more than 100 years of combined experience in various public and private higher education organizations.
In addition, the Academy is supported by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, Capital One, and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) in awarding scholarships to selected recipients.
The organization states:
Mentorship with a university president is a key component, as well as the development of a special project designed to have an impact at the Fellow’s current institution.
