Saenz Confirmed as a Keynote Speaker

Dr. Victor Saenz will serve as one of the keynote speakers for the 45th Annual TACHE State Conference. Dr. Saenz's keynote address is titled: "Ensuring the Success of Male Students of Color Across Texas". Dr. Saenz is the Chair & Processor of Educational Leadership and Policy and Executive Director of Project MALES at the University of Texas-Austin.


The keynote session will provide a current status of the gender gap in educational attainment for male students of color in the state of Texas. Dr. Sáenz will showcase promising strategies for addressing this growing state and national imperative. In particular, our session will spotlight two initiatives that have grown out of our expansive research efforts in Texas: 1.) the award-winning Project MALES (Mentoring to Achieve Latino Educational Success) initiative, and 2.) the Texas Education Consortium for Male Students of Color (Consortium), made up of school districts, community colleges, and four-year institutions across the state. These initiatives each stem from the synthesis of prior research efforts that explore the educational pathways of Latino and other male students through high school, college, and beyond.
