What Does HECUA Mean?
The HECUA acronym stands for Higher Education Consortium for Urban Affairs. (You won't be required to remember that!) HECUA is a nonprofit consortium based in St. Paul. It includes 17 colleges and universities, with the University of Minnesota among its founding members. HECUA strives to build knowledge and community while enabling students to create social change.
HECUA also offers international programs in Bangladesh, Ecuador, Northern Ireland, New Zealand, and Norway. Visit the hecua.org International Programs page for information. U of M students must apply for these programs via the U of M's Learning Abroad Center.
