Thank you for visiting the Texas Association of Chicanos in Higher Education (TACHE) website. If this is the first time you visit our website, welcome; if you have been here before, welcome back. TACHE is a professional association committed to the improvement of educational and employment opportunities for Hispanics in higher education. I invite you to become a member of TACHE and help support the mission of TACHE. As a member you will have access to job listings, networking opportunities, advocacy and cultural promotion.
The 2016 Conference was recently held in San Antonio and themed “¡Adelante! Latinos on the Rise: Remembering our Past, Leading our Future. If predictions hold true, the number of Hispanics will double by 2050; our work needs to be focused on the future. The definition of the Spanish word Adelante is forward, ahead, in front. It may seem simplistic to the average person but for nuestra gente, Adelante carries the meaning of giving one’s children a good education, a step forward and above what we were able to achieve. It is important to continue the work that others began many years ago, so that we can continue to move TACHE forward/Adelante with dedication, passion, enthusiasm and mucho orgullo.
I am honored to serve TACHE, its memberships and all our partners. I am open to your suggestions and comments, so that together we can move TACHE forward into the next 40 years.
Respectfully y Adelante,
Maria C. Aguirre
2016 TACHE President
María C. Aguirre, President
