Institute for Texan Cultures

New director leads museum

As its name implies, the Institute of Texan Cultures focuses on promoting the many cultures of the people it serves. For the first time, the institute has a bicultural leader at the helm.

This year, Angelica M. Docog became the executive director at the museum, bringing 14 years of museum experience to the position. She came to San Antonio from the Charlotte Museum of History.

"I'm entrusted with such a tremendous honor," said Docog, who is also the first woman to lead the institute. "It's daunting, but exciting because I've seen the passion people have for the ITC.

"As a scholar and museum professional with a proven track record of success, Ms. Docog is the optimal choice to lead the Institute of Texan Cultures in its mission to serve the community and provide access to unique learning opportunities, as UTSA transforms into a Tier One research institution," said Jude Valdez, UTSA vice president for Community Services.
