HACU's 2013 Annual Conference Call for Papers
The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) will host its 2013 Annual Conference October 26-28 in Chicago, IL. HACU’s premier national conference features sessions about the best and most promising practices in the education of Hispanics.
HACU Conference Format
Presentation slots are 75 minutes in length, including time for questions and discussion. Interactive sessions are much preferred over lecture-style presentations. A panel session is composed of two or three presentations on different aspects of a specific topic. A workshop is an interactive session composed of one to three presentations aimed to develop a particular skill or knowledge in a specific area. No more than four individuals may serve on a panel or workshop session. In some instances, the HACU review committee may suggest combining presentations similar in content into one workshop or panel.
All conference rooms will be set up to accommodate the maximum number of conference participants possible. LCD projectors, laptops and screens are available to presenters at no cost. Additional equipment, such as internet connectivity and TVs, can be available at an additional cost to presenters.
Speaker proposals will be accepted under the conference theme, Championing Hispanic Higher Education Success: Securing the American Dream. Download Guidelines at http://www.hacu.net/images/hacu/conf/27ac/27thAC_CFP_web.pdf.
