Dissertation Title: Evaluating College Access and Success for Different Generations of Latina/o/xs

Dissertation Abstract: Daniel’s research examines racial inequality in higher education. He recently published a journal article with Nicholas Hillman titled “The Equity Implications of Paying for Performance in Higher Education.” This study evaluated whether Minority-Serving Institutions experienced any changes in state funding levels after the introduction of performance-based funding policies. Daniel’s dissertation is tentatively titled Evaluating College Access and Success for Different Generations of Latina/o/xs. Designed as a collection of three academic papers, his dissertation project will compare and contrast academic outcomes among first-, second-, and third-generation Latina/o/x students. The study will implement quasi-experimental designs on secondary data from surveys collected by the National Center for Education Statistics.
