Hispanic Association for Cultural Enrichment at Rice


Established in 1972, the Hispanic Association for Cultural Enrichment at Rice (HACER) is one of the most visible organizations for Hispanics on campus. However, we also offer many opportunities for all members of the Rice community  to enjoy such as cultural, educational, political, service, outreach, and social activities.

Check out our new logo! A big thanks to everyone who helped in the process.
