The PhD Project, an award-winning program to create diversity in management, is proud to announce that four PhD Project professors were recognized during the week of September 19-23, 2016, by the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics. They are, Dr. Rowena Ortiz-Walters, Dr. Rebecca Perren, Dr. Jose Rosa and Dr. Cinthia Satornino.
While Latinos make up one quarter of students in public schools and 17 percent of the undergraduate population, Latinos only represent 4 percent of the total number of our U.S. higher education faculty. With the #LatinosTeach online campaign, the Initiative will demonstrate that while they are underrepresented, Hispanics are dedicating themselves to serving their community through teaching.
