Our Lady of the Lake University will host the National Association for Chicana/Chicano Studies Tejas Foco 4th Annual Statewide Summit on Mexican American Studies for Texas Schools. The summit is organized by the NACCS Tejas Foco Committee on Implementing Mexican American Studies in Texas Schools, Somos MAS, San Antonio’s regional Mexican American Studies.

This one-day event is open educators and community members who are interested in implementing Mexican American Studies in Texas schools or expanding course offerings. Mexican American History, Fine Arts, and Literature courses are currently being offered in high schools and some middle schools across the state. This year’s summit will provide a step-by-step guide for how to establish MAS courses. The plan can be adapted for individual schools and districts. Participants will also work together to draft a resolution to encourage school districts to commit to providing the resources necessary to establish MAS courses.

This year, we added a new bilingual education session focused on integrating MAS content into the curriculum. In addition, we have included an Ethnic Studies working group. Texas teachers will receive up to 8 hours of Continuing Professional Education for participating in this Summit.

The Summit coincides with the Mexican American Studies Decolonial Epistemologies Symposium. This event will take place on Friday, June 14, from 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm at UTSA Downtown’s Aula Canaria Theater. It is free and open to the public. For more information on the symposium please contact, Dr. Lilliana Saldaña at lilliana.saldana@utsa.edu
