MEET DR. GARCIA
Dr. Gina Ann Garcia is a leading scholar on Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) and an Associate Professor in the department of Educational Foundations, Organizations, and Policy at the University of Pittsburgh.
Dr. Garcia's research centers on issues of equity and justice in higher education with an emphasis on understanding how HSIs embrace and enact an organizational identity for serving minoritized populations. She also seeks to understand the experiences of administrators, faculty, and staff within HSIs and the outcomes and experiences of students attending these institutions. Finally, her research looks at the ways that race and racism have shaped the experiences of minoritized groups in higher education.
Explore my recent books and publications to understand the organizational structures, governance, curriculum development and student experiences that shape Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs), and explore theories and promising practices to transform HSIs and better serve students at your institution.
