What is L-TALC?

The Latino Teacher Academy Learning Community (L-TALC) is a collaborative student support partnership between UTSA’s Academy for Teacher Excellence Research Center (ATE) and Northwest Vista College that provides services to help Latino teacher candidates overcome barriers that may prevent them from completing their college education. 

Participants in L-TALC include:

  • NVC Students
  • High School Students
  • UTSA Undergraduates

The L-TALC program at NVC aids students who are pursuing a degree in Education with earning their Associate’s and transferring to UTSA. We strongly encourage high school and community college students to join the program prior to starting at UTSA in order to connect with support services and programs that will ease their transition to UTSA.
