TACHE President Elect

Saludos y bienvenidos to the 2015 State Conference of the Texas Association of Chicanos in Higher Education: 

It is my honor and privilege to serve as your conference chair for 40th annual TACHE conference. Given the increased relevance of our mission, I have chosen the following theme: Trabajando: Activism through Education. The role of President-Elect is critical to the success of the upcoming conference—a responsibility to be engaged with fervor and orgullo. Having recently earned my tenure, my passion and energy is now focused on furthering our cause. Without the support of the state board and chapter members, this altruistic effort would be daunting. The gratitude and pride I feel for my TACHE familia—I pray—is evident in the work presented by our fine association.   

Our 40th conference, returning to El Paso after 23 years, will be a celebration of four decades of hard work and dedication. It will also be an opportunity to collaborate with colleagues and discuss how to become active participants in our individual and collective success. The reinforcement of TACHE’s mission has always been present at our conferences, and this year we promise to address the importance of ownership and struggles in higher education. Our speakers will present on the current state of educational achievement, immigration reform, border violence, and voting rights. Additionally, our student strand promises to engage our emerging scholars and embolden them with TACHE’s spirit. Your experience in El Chuco—as we affectionately call El Paso—will serve as motivation for our continued work.

My gratitude goes out to each and every one of you, and also to the generous backing of our institutional and corporate sponsors, many of whom are renewing their support. The contributions of sponsors allows us to reinforce our partnerships and the intersections within the expansive community of Texas. Your attendance, monetary and moral support are clear indications that you share in TACHE’s mission as we work toward forwarding our mutual goals.
