Who We Are

On April, 2018 Presidents from universities across Latin, America the Caribbean, Canada and the United States convened to discuss the concept of a hemispheric consortium to facilitate problem-based collaborations in education, research and innovation to generate the knowledge and solutions necessary to confronting the key challenges facing not only the hemispheric but also the globe including:

Public Health, Wellbeing and Human Prosperity

Climate Change, Sustainability and Resilience

Entrepreneurship
and Inclusive Innovation

Crime, Conflict,
and
Corruption

Technology and Innovation for Education

Collaborations through the Hemispheric University Consortium are based on the shared recognition of the pressing developmental challenges that confront our societies and the consequent imperative that the members jointly reflect, align and act upon the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030.
