Keynote Speakers

The demographics of students in higher education continue to evolve. Join the 2021 TACHE Conference to learn from Dr. Michael F. Chavez about how colleges and universities can make data-informed decisions to support their students and to continue to grow our college graduation rates.


Dr. Chavez, Executive Director of Strategic Analytics @UTPB has dedicated his career to closing the access and achievement gaps in higher education and he does this by following trends and decoding important data. He will be joined by Texas' renowned demographer Dr. Lloyd B. Potter to combine demographic changes in Texas with student success.

Deborah Santiago co-founded Excelencia in Education in 2004 with the goal of accelerating Latino student success in higher education. She has led efforts from the community to national and federal levels to improve educational opportunities and success for all students. Santiago has been cited in numerous publications for her work, including The Economist, the New York Times, the New York Times and The Chronicle of Higher Education.


You may also remember that TACHE and Excelencia recently formed a partnership and will jointly co-host a pre-conference technical workshop to promote evidence-based practices and examples to ensure that Latino Student Success is elevated.
