About the Hispanic Alumni Council
The University of Memphis Alumni Association welcomes our newest club, the Hispanic Alumni Council, to our Tiger family. The Hispanic Alumni Council (HAC) works tirelessly to exemplify the broader role of Hispanics within the University of Memphis community.
HAC is devoted to the advancement and development of current students and alumni of the University of Memphis. The community and the HAC are empowered with each Hispanic graduate of the University of Memphis. The goal of the Council is to build and connect a network of Hispanic alumni from the University of Memphis and to foster scholarships for students at the University of Memphis. These scholarships will help to create and realize possibilities for a new generation of Hispanic students.
The Hispanic Alumni Council urges everyone to get involved. Please join and help to expand, diversify and strengthen the Tiger network. Check back for more information about upcoming activities.
