Dr. Leticia Palomín received her Doctorate of Philosophy in Educational Administration, with an emphasis in Higher Education Administration from Texas A&M University in 2018. She joined the Texas Education Consortium for Male Students of Color (“Consortium”) in the summer of 2013.
Project MALES is excited to congratulate Dr. Leticia Palomín as the first Post-Doctoral Consortium Fellow at Texas A&M University. She will continue to work with these institutions to develop Capacity Building Tools and Activities (CBTA) that focus on improving the educational outcomes of male students of color across the P-16 educational pipeline. Prior to the Consortium, she was a bilingual financial aid advisor and worked closely with first-year academic success programs focused on transitioning first-generation students along with their families to Texas A&M University. Broadly speaking, her work focuses on the educational experiences of diverse student populations across educational sectors to advance equitable outcomes in higher education. Her research agenda focuses on three areas: 1) Latinx familial involvement in the pre-college preparation process; 2) Financial aid literacy; and 3) the access and retention of underrepresented student populations. Dr. Palomín brings a wealth of experiences and expertise to inform the ongoing work with the Consortium. She was born and raised in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas.
