Hispanic Online Univ. To Carry Education Summit

 Springville, UT - The International Hispanic Online University (IHOU), a provider of online college courses taught in Spanish, has just announced its partnership with the Latino Education & Advocacy (LEAD) Summit being held on the campus of California State University – San Bernardino on March 28, 2011.

IHOU is providing a virtual town hall where participants can interact on discussion boards with each other and the LEAD Summit delegation, in conjunction with this Summit. Topics of mutual interest to advocate for Latinos in higher education will be presented at the Summit. In addition to asynchronous interaction before and after the Summit, IHOU facilitators will be on-site at the Summit where they will forward questions from the virtual town hall to Summit presenters. Finally, the town hall will function as a repository for key interviews with leaders, participants, as well as relevant resources related to the LEAD Summit.

“IHOU is pleased to provide this platform to enhance interactivity among the participants of the LEAD Summit,” said Marvin Loflin, IHOU President. “The leadership, collaboration, and resources provided by the Summit are crucial to the development of higher education.”

The objective of the LEAD summit is to promote a broad-based awareness of the crisis in Latino Education and to enhance the intellectual, cultural and personal development of our community's educators, administrators, leaders and students.

The International Hispanic Online University provides the essential tools for students to reach their goals of education, success, and a better life. IHOU recognizes that enabling Hispanic students to take online college courses in Spanish and supporting these students with a socio-educational network and English language learning increases the rate of degree attainment.
