The Institute of Texan Cultures announced the appointment of Angelica M. Docog as executive director of the UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures, effective March 12, 2012. Docog has 14 years experience as a museum-pro, previously working at the Charlotte Museum of History. Docog currently sits on the advisory board for Smithsonian Affiliates, the Asian Pacific committee of the American Association of Museums and the board of directors for the Confucius Institute at Pfeiffer University in Charlotte. She has served as adjunct faculty at the University of North Carolina and the University of Colorado, teaching museum education. She has extensive experience in various aspects of museum operations, including exhibit curator, researcher, and director of education and interpretation.
“The Institute of Texan Cultures is a key element in UTSA’s community outreach efforts in San Antonio and across the state,” said Jude Valdez, UTSA vice president for community services. “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."
One of Docog’s challenges will be finding a place for the ITC as the SA2020 master plan rolls out in HemisFair Park.
