About the event
In this keynote address, Dr. Garcia talks about her Decolonizing HSIs Framework, which is an organizational model that is grounded in decolonial theory and anti-racist practices. First, she talks about the social and historical factors that have hindered the educational success of Latinxs, arguing for the need to use critical theory as a framework for serving these students. Then she lays out the framework, which includes nine organizational elements: mission, purpose, membership, governance, technology, boundary management, incentive structures, justice & accountability, and community standards. Audience members will be encouraged to think about how to transform HSIs, from an organizational level, using her framework.
