Dr. Garcia is a leading thinker and researcher on HSIs and we have used her work to guide our planning. Gina’s research provided us with a framework and language to make sense of our transformation and the potential to serve Latinx students to the best of our ability. Her guidance is practical yet grounded in research and she provides higher education leaders with many insights on HSIs at various stages of development. Most importantly, Dr. Garcia pushes our thinking and consciousness to act--beyond a conceptual commitment. I appreciate that her innovative and forward thinking on HSIs.
