What is the Hispanic Global Alliance?
The barriers to study abroad for Hispanic students are complex and multi-faceted. This is why the Hispanic Association of Colleges & Universities (HACU) and Global Learning Semesters, a leading organization in the field of study abroad, have launched The Hispanic Global Alliance, a groundbreaking initiative to address the root causes of the gap in Hispanic study abroad.

What is the Hispanic Global Alliance?
Financial Support
Even the federal government is looking for ways to fund more pervasive participation in study abroad. There are no easy answers in how to make study abroad affordable for every student. However, Global Learning Semesters has committed to making available at least $8 million of study abroad scholarships over the next ten years through the Hispanic Study Abroad Scholars (HSAS) program and to working with HACU to look for Special Initiatives that provide additional scholarship monies.

What is the Hispanic Global Alliance?
Institutional Capacity Building
At many HACU institutions, even when a student seeks out a way to study abroad, there are not institutional policies and procedures in place to support study abroad. Thus, building an institutional infrastructure to support study abroad is just the first step in getting students involved in study abroad. Through training and technology, Global Learning Semesters is making its expertise in operating study abroad programs available to HACU institutions that allow even the smallest schools to support an effective study abroad portfolio.

What is the Hispanic Global Alliance?
Program Development
HACU and Global Learning Semesters have developed an advisory committee to guide the co-development of programs in Latin America. The goal is to combine Global Learning Semesters' tradition of innovative program design with HACU's expertise in topical issues important to Hispanic students.

Why does Study Abroad matter?

Capacity Building
One of the barriers to Hispanic study abroad is home institution readiness. Many HACU institutions have not had the opportunity or the financial means to build large study abroad offices or take the institutional steps needed to promote study abroad to their students. We want to make it easier for even the smallest institution to be able to provide high quality study abroad offering to its students in terms of program relevance, internal administrative systems, student support services and safety and liability.

Institutional Self-Study Process

© 2007 Hispanic Global Alliance

Self-Study
The management of Study Abroad reflects a microcosm of the entire college. It is a team effort. The self-study gives you an opportunity to better understand the functions related to study abroad and who may share a part in managing study abroad responsibilities.
