207: Equity and Justice in Hispanic Serving Institutions with Dr Gina Anne Garcia
This week, I am thrilled to have Dr. Gina Ann Garcia with us who talks to us about equity and justice in Hispanic Serving Institutions.
Dr. Garcia is a professor in the Berkeley School of Education. Dra. Gina’s research centers on issues of equity and diversity in higher education with an emphasis on understanding how Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) embrace and enact an organizational identity for serving minoritized populations. She is the author of Becoming Hispanic-Serving Institutions: Opportunities for Colleges & Universities as well as Transforming Hispanic Serving Institutions for Equity and Justice. She is also the host of the podcast ¿Qué pasa, HSIs?
In this conversation, we explore the following topics: The importance of HSIs and their role in promoting equity and justice in higher education. The challenges of implementing servingness and the time and effort it takes for institutions to transform. She introduces her podcast, ¿Qué pasa, HSIs?, and how she’s using it as a tool for professional development, sharing best practices, and uplifting voices in the field. She also offers advice for first-gen BIPOC students considering graduate education at HSIs.
