About the event
In this keynote address, Dr. Garcia provides basic information about HSIs, including their history and characteristics, as well as basic demographics of undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff at HSIs. She then provides an overview of her own research, including the development of the Typology of HSI Organizational Identities, in which she argues that the HSI identity is conceptualized by both outcomes and culture. Using the current research on HSIs, Dr. Garcia shows that the HSI identity is complicated, multifaceted, and transitional. Audience members will learn what it means to move from Latinx-enrolling to Latinx-serving.
