About the event
In this keynote address, Dr. Garcia discusses her book, published by Johns Hopkins University Press. The book is about three HSIs in Chicago that are all four-years HSIs, but each have different characteristics, ranging in size, type, institutional control, mission, and history as HSIs. Dr. Garcia lays out her general argument about the racialization of HSIs, and how they are often evaluated in comparison to racially white institutions within a system that values racially white norms and measures. She then provides evidence of how HSIs are unique, based on empirical data collected with the three HSIs in her study. Audience members will be encouraged to think about how becoming an HSI is an individual process for each college and university.
