Visit to Austin Community College

In April I was invited to speak at the Latino Perspectives Symposium: Characteristics of Today’s Latino Students and Strategies for Success. I was honored to have been invited and to be among such amazing Latino academics like Patricia Gándara, Ph.D., Professor of Education, University of California, Los Angeles. Frances Contreras, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Education, University of Washington who were presenting their research “Addressing the Latino Crises in Higher Education.”

Here’s a picture of me with the famous Chicano/Tejano playwright Rupert Reyes. We presented on “What Describes the Mind and Heart of Latinos.”

There was a great youth panel that also reflected on their experiences and how they achieved academic success.
