The Hispanic Presidents’ Council (HPC) aims to serve as a means through which all Hispanic students can rise to achieve their full potential as both scholars and leaders in the Texas A&M community. To obtain its purpose, the council will promote the awareness of existing Hispanic organizations available to the student body of Texas A&M University. HPC will also serve as a support group for organizations by disseminating resources to the student population and organizing events, but more importantly providing a “voice” for the concerns of the Hispanic population.

El objetivo del Consejo de Presidentes Hispanos (HPC) es servir como un medio a través del cual todos los estudiantes hispanos pueden elevarse para alcanzar su máximo potencial académico y volverse líderes en la comunidad de Texas A&M. Para lograr su propósito, el consejo promoverá el conocimiento de las organizaciones hispanas existentes disponibles para el cuerpo estudiantil de la Universidad de Texas A&M. HPC también servirá como un grupo de apoyo para organizaciones mediante la difusión de recursos a la población estudiantil y la organización de eventos, pero lo que es más importante, proporcionará una "voz" para las preocupaciones de la población hispana.
