The purpose of the Fund is to assist in the development of educational projects, scholarly research, creative endeavors, and professional activities which promote diversity, multiculturalism, and non-discrimination on the basis of the following categories: race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, transgender, disability, genetic predisposition or carrier status, alienage or citizenship, veteran or marital status. Projects/activities will be considered which explore non-discrimination and the condition of the protected classes, for The City University of New York, including Italian-Americans.

Statement by HACU President and CEO Antonio R. Flores on the signing of White House Executive Order on Hispanic education

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

“The Hispanic Association of Colleges & Universities (HACU) applauds President Barack Obama for signing an executive order today renewing the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans. We see this signing as a further step to ensure the educational success of all Hispanic students.

President Obama’s goal of the U.S. once again becoming the world’s leader in degree attainment by 2020 is only achievable if Hispanic higher education success is increased dramatically in the years ahead. This in turn can only happen if Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) are equitably supported to increase their capacity to educate the fast-growing numbers of Hispanics enrolling in colleges and universities. It is our hope that a result of today’s executive order will be the allocation of additional funding and resources to HSIs to better prepare and educate Hispanic students.”  (Press on the link to see the full statement.)
