Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, San Antonio, TX.
The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) is a national association representing two- and four-year colleges and universities in the United States and Puerto Rico where Hispanic students constitute at least 25% of the total student enrollment. Following a brief introduction and letters from the HACU chair and president, this eight-part report provides a status report on Hispanics in higher education and the institutions that serve them. Section I reviews specific HACU activities conducted over the last year in the areas of becoming a referral service for member colleges, promoting programs that target resources to member institutions, conducting seminars and workshops on Hispanic-specific topics, promoting public policy initiatives at the federal level, and engaging in special projects to improve the educational success rates of Hispanics in higher education. Section II provides an overview of Hispanics in higher education, examining high school completion rates, undergraduate and graduate enrollments, total bachelor's and doctoral degrees awarded, and degrees awarded in selected fields, and Hispanic employment in higher education. Section III profiles Hispanic-serving institutions of higher education, defined as those non-profit colleges and universities with a Hispanic enrollment of at least 25%. This section reviews geographic distribution and type of control of these institutions, enrollments, and majors offered. Sections IV through VIII provide a directory of Hispanic-serving organizations, the names and affiliations of HACU's 1989-90 Board of Director's Executive Committee, an outline of corporate and foundation support, and a financial statement for the fiscal years 1988 and 1989. Data tables are included. (PAA)
