Claudia García-Louis, PhD

Assistant Professor
University Texas, San Antonio

Dr. Claudia García-Louis is an assistant professor in the Education Leadership and Policy Studies Department at the University of Texas, San Antonio. Her research approach is interdisciplinary in nature as she seeks to disrupt negative stereotypes about Latinx students, minoritized populations, and underrepresented students through the critical incorporation of culturally appropriate, asset-based methodological approaches. Her goals are to expand the definitions of Latinidad and Blackness in higher education, to make a critical contribution to a newly formed line of inquiry that explores the educational experiences of AfroLatinx, and to conduct research that highlights Latinx heterogeneity, and the experiences of Latina-mamí-scholars.
