Message from the Chairman of the Board

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to another edition of HETS Newsletter. HETS started the year, with many challenges, exciting events and alliances. This issue demonstrates the progress made by our organization as we continue to make strides in advancing educational opportunities for Hispanic students.
In this issue you will find a sampling of what we are doing and relevant news related to our members:
  • HETS Free Services Promoted in Campus Visits:To reinforce internal relations and increase member's involvement, the HETS Executive Director has visited various campuses to promote the consortium's free of charge services. These visits had the purpose to communicate HETS commitment to better serve its member institutions, and explore new collaborative liaisons. Read more...
  • Videos: 2013 Virtual Best Practices Showcase:The first ever HETS Virtual Best Practices Showcase that took place from January 27 to February 8, was an evocative success! During the winter meeting, the HETS Board of Directors scheduled the 2014 Best Practices Showcase to be held in January 16 and 17, 2014 at Universidad del Sagrado Corazón. Soon we will be distributing the official Call for Proposals, so stay tuned to HETS news on this event. Read more...

In addition, our HETS Online Journal continues to serve as a vehicle for state-of-the-art articles about the use of technology in the teaching and learning of our student population. By April 2013, we will be publishing a no less interesting issue. More than 8 articles have been received, and are in the process of reviewing by the Editorial Board. Meanwhile, we invite you to visit HETS Online Journaland review our fall issue. Please help us to disseminate this peer reviewed publication now that has been added to EBSCO and Cengage databases.

As you can see, as usual there is much that is taking place within HETS, and there is much more to do!

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I welcome you to this issue of the HETS Connection, enjoy!
