TACHE President 2018 Dr. Liz Palacios


Welcome to the 43rd Annual Texas Association of Chicanos in Higher Education (TACHE) State Conference. It is an honor and privilege to serve you as the 2018 Conference Chair. This year our theme is ¡Si Podemos!: Building a Legacy of Leaders and Scholars. I believe that in a time where we have record numbers of Latino students enrolling in colleges and universities, we still have much work to do in their retention and graduation. In fact, developing our Latino faculty, staff, and students in both leadership and scholarship is truly the next step. TACHE’s history has been to support and promote the Latino community in all aspects of higher education. As we come together, let us share our ideas, research, best practices, and friendship. Mentorship is another component that we want to promote for both our professionals and students. Through mentoring, we empower the next generation to continue to build a brighter future for Latinos. I thank the conference planning committee who has worked diligently to make this a great conference. I invite you to fully engage, meet new people, envision unlikely partnerships, and accept the challenge to move our vision forward!

I am most thankful for my colleagues, TACHE President Belinda Harmon and Past-President Maria Aguirre for their unwavering commitment and passion for TACHE! I look forward to seeing you at the conference! Come ready to learn, engage, educate, and network with amazing TACHISTAs across the state!

Best wishes,

Elizabeth (Liz) Palacios, Ph.D.
President-Elect and Conference Chair
