SENATE RECOGNIZES 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE HACU NATIONAL INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
A bipartisan Senate recognized the 30th Anniversary of the HACU National Internship Program. The Senate Resolution celebrates the HNIP legacy of increasing diversity in the Federal Government and the private sector.
The Resolution also recognizes that HNIP has been cited in the Hispanic Nine Point Plan by the Office of Personnel Management as a resource to increase the recruitment of Hispanic interns in the Federal Government; and has produced over 14,000 alumni who are now in the Federal Government, State or local government, and private industry.
“The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities thanks the Senate for recognizing the 30-year milestone of the HACU National Internship Program that has opened doors for many colleges students and served as a resource to increasing workforce diversity nationwide in the Federal Government and the private sector,” said HACU President and CEO Antonio R. Flores. “We are grateful to all our federal and corporate partners who have given our interns from Hispanic-Serving Institutions and other colleges and universities invaluable opportunities to gain real world experience to help shape the future workforce of this nation.”
