SAC ASCENDER PROGRAM DIRECTOR, JAIMES,
RECEIVES HACU FELLOWSHIP
SAC Ascender Program Director, Joan Jaimes, has received a fellowship to be part of the fourth cohort of HACU’s Leadership Academy/La Academia de Liderazgo. The program is designed to increase diverse representation in executive and senior-level positions in higher education.
Fellows participate in an array of leadership development activities preparing them for leadership roles in the full spectrum of institutions of higher learning, with an emphasis on Hispanic-Serving Institutions and Emerging HSIs.
The one-year fellowship program includes webinars and three seminars. The first seminar will be held in Oct. 2022 in conjunction with HACU’s 36th Annual Conference. The second seminar will be held in Washington, D.C., in April 2023, at HACU’s National Capitol Forum. The third seminar will take place at an international seminar to be held in the spring or summer of 2023.
The Leadership Academy faculty consists of current and former presidents, chancellors and senior administrators and brings over 100 years of combined experience in serving various sectors of higher education, including private/public universities, community colleges and faith-based institutions. 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.
