Project MALES will host our third and FINAL platica of fall 2020 in a virtual webinar on November 16, Monday. We will be joined by our research affiliate and University of Houston Postdoctoral research fellow Dr. Susana Hernandez.
Here is a brief introduction on Dr. Hernandez and some of her recent work:
Susana is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Educational Leadership & Policy Studies (ELPS) at the University of Houston. In this role, she supports the qualitative data collection and analysis for the Start Strong to Finish (SSTF) Project— a mixed-methods and collaborative research project with Houston Community College focused on increasing the academic success of minoritized students placed in developmental/remedial coursework. Susana’s student and professional experiences in higher education as a first-generation Latina shapes and informs her research. Her research interests are centered on using critical and non-deficit frameworks to study how higher education state and institutional policies may create hostile campus environments for racially and ethnically minoritized students and faculty. Susana graduated in May 2020 with her Ph.D. in Educational Administration with an emphasis in Higher Education Administration from Texas A&M University. She earned her B.A. in Criminal Justice with minors in Sociology and Chicano Studies from the University of Wyoming and M.Ed. in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from Iowa State University
