Dear TACHE-istas and Guests,
Thank you for visiting the Texas Association of Chicanos in Higher Education (TACHE) website. As you navigate through the various pages, you will learn about who we are and understand our mission: "TACHE is a professional association committed to the improvement of educational and employment opportunities for Hispanics in higher education." You will also encounter meaningful resources such as, job listings, networking opportunities, and cultural promotion within the academe.
I invite you to become a member or begin your involvement with TACHE by visiting the region and chapter webpages found through this website. Here, you will also find information about the upcoming annual conference. This year's theme, "Trabajando: Activism through Education" promises to be both exciting and enlightening.
We are currently living at an historic time for Latina/os, Chicana/os, Mexican Americans, and Hispanics. The intersections of our collective cultures, with that of all other American cultures, presents us with the opportunity for an exchange of ideas and collaboration toward equitable access and success. As you are aware, this responsibility requires leadership. TACHE, through its amazing membership, is poised to deliver that leadership.
I encourage you to learn more about the fascinating history of TACHE through the book, Images of America: The Texas Association of Chicanos in Higher Education, by Dr. José Angel Gutiérrez and Natalia Verjat Gutiérrez. You can own this text by purchasing through this website.
It is my privilege to serve the association, its membership, and the state board.
"Trabajando: Activism through Education"
