The Department of Defense and the Hispanic Association of
Colleges and Universities will sign a partnership agreement at 3
p.m., October 22, 1996, in the Executive Dining Room 3A1062,
Lounge #3, the Pentagon.
The Honorable Frederick F.Y. Pang, assistant secretary of
Defense for Force Management Policy will sign the agreement on
behalf of DoD. Dr. Antonio R. Flores, president of HACU will
sign in behalf of his organization.
The DoD/HACU partnership agreement will enhance an on-going
relationship of many years as well as providing for a
collaborative relation in the area of student intern programs,
faculty exchanges, recruitment of their students for DoD
positions, and research in areas applicable to the DoD mission.
The agreement will serve as a good faith document
establishing a structure for DoD to work effectively and
productively with the nearly 200 Colleges and Universities that
make up the HACU system. It will not obligate DoD to expend
funds in its implementation.
For additional information on the DoD/HACU agreement,
