Thank you for visiting the TACHE San Antonio chapter page. Whether you are an administrator, faculty, staff or student, you can be an advocate for the TACHE mission of promoting educational and employment opportunities for Chicanos in higher education. We invite you to attend our next meeting and to become a member today.
Raul Murguia was teacher, parent, husband, friend, poet, and a man of vision who saw what needed to be done, not for his own sake, but for the greater good of everyone who would come after. He worked and taught at San Antonio College, and, in collaboration with others, founded the Texas Association of Chicanos in Higher Education. In reaching for a better way of life, Murguia touched the hand of immortality, where even death does not conquer his spirit and leadership. SAC Colleagues worked diligently to establish a fixed memorial on the San Antonio College campus, and additionally, to rename the President's Honor Society Program that recognizes students who aspire and achieve excellence in their academic pursuits as tribute to Murguia, the man and his vision.
The 42nd annual conference of the Texas Association of Chicanos in Higher Education (TACHE) will be held in Austin, Texas, February 26-March 1, 2017. The conference theme this year is “Creer y Crecer: Inspiring and Building a Stronger Nation through Higher Education.”
The TACHE elections will be open from February 1st through February 10th for the following offices: President-Elect & Secretary. Regional representatives for the Central Region and Northeast Region will be elected by the members of their respective regions at the 42nd Annual TACHE Conference during the regional caucus meetings.
