"The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities and the U.S. Army
are committed to improving educational opportunities for Hispanic students,"
said President and CEO of HACU, Dr.
"The Army makes a considerable investment in providing opportunities for
life-long learning, including access to higher education, training in cutting-
edge technologies and real world experience. Our partnership with HACU helps
ensure the Hispanic community is aware of and has access to the broad range of
resources and benefits we provide for our youth," said Lieutenant General
Specific areas of focus identified in the MOU include expanding test preparation resources for educators and students; building a comprehensive understanding of career and technical choices for students; collaborating on programs designed to increase awareness of U.S. Army resources available to Hispanics seeking higher education, career and leadership opportunities; and increasing HSI and HSSD understanding of the benefits and educational opportunities provided through Army service.
The MOU also outlines the Army's continued support of HACU's Annual Conference and of the HACU's innovative College Tour program, which brings high school students to universities to learn more about college life. The U.S. Army also will be presented as a HACU partner and resource to HSIs and HSSDs for college preparedness via U.S. Army College planning assessment tools, like March2Success and ROTC scholarships.
The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) is the only
national educational association that represents existing and emerging
Hispanic-Serving Institutions in the nation. Founded in 1986, HACU represents

success in the U.S.,
