About our project:

The Hispanic Serving Institution-Hubs, “Intersectionality as Inquiry and Praxis: Race, Class, Gender and Ethnicity for Student Success in STEM" (HSI-Hubs), is a 5-year long National Science Foundation (NSF) grant-funded partnership between the City College of New York, Lehman College, Hostos Community College, The University of New Mexico, New Mexico State University and Central New Mexico Community College.

Our project centers on examining students’ performance in STEM and non-STEM majors using an intersectionality approach and detecting and incorporating appropriate variables and ways of measuring them to create a more accurate/truthful picture of Latino/a/x students’ experience in institutions of higher education.

Dr. Ramona Herandez (City College of New York)- Director of the CUNY Dominican Studies Institute & Professor of Sociology

Dr. Yoel Rodriguez (Hostos Community College)- Professor, Physical Science Unit
