Special Statement from the Executive Board

Dear Members,

The Texas Association for College Admission Counseling's (TACAC) vision statement is to develop professionals committed to providing the highest quality counseling to ensure students' access to and persistence through post-secondary education.  We are governed by the values of service, professionalism, mutual respect, cooperation and communication, creativity and innovation, diversity and individualism, and ethics.  These values and ideals are critical to our organization and the work we do to support students who are entrusted in our care.

I am reaching out to inform you that TACAC will work to advocate access for all students.  The recent executive order by President Trump goes against our values of respect and diversity and places our students in a difficult place to navigate the post-secondary educational process. Further, it affects our secondary and post-secondary professionals whose positions may require international travel.  TACAC will continue to appeal to our legislators about the importance of diversity in education and remain vigilant in supporting our members as they help to support their students, families, and themselves to answer many questions during this time and in this process. 

The TACAC Executive Board will continue to work diligently in supporting our members and providing resources that will assist them during this time.  We will work with the National Association, the other 22 affiliates, and other state education organizations to support members with resources to navigate our work in counseling students and professionals. 

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact myself or any of the TACAC leadership whose emails can be found on the TACAC leadership page of our TACAC website. 

Ismael Rodriguez, Jr., President, Texas ACAC
Angelica Melendez, President-Elect, Texas ACAC
Dr. Beverly Woodson Day, Past President, Texas ACAC
