Dissertation Description

Various reports have indicated that transgender immigrants are disproportionately subject to sexual and physical abuses while in detention in addition to being denied hormone therapy, medical care, and housed in solitary confinement. Despite these reports, limited research has examined the psychological impact of detention proceedings on the lives on Latinx, trans immigrants. This study provides an understanding of the  psychological impact that the systemic power of detention and solitary confinement has on the multidimensional lives of Latinx, transgender immigrants through an intersectional lens.

AAHHE February Webinar

Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) Program 
Wednesday, February 9, 2022, 12:00pm ET
View the Recording Here!

During this one-hour session, HSI program directors will provide information to participants about the three different tracks of the HSI program and how they can be utilized in the development of the HSI institution.

Track 1: The Planning or Pilot Projects (PPP) track provides a funding opportunity for institutions that are new to NSF or are Primarily Undergraduate Institutions (PUIs), including community colleges. Planning projects in this track undertake the activities necessary to develop a future HSI program Track 2 or Track 3 proposal submission.

Track 2: The Implementation and Evaluation Projects (IEP) track supports the implementation of evidence-based unit-, department-, or multi-department-level activities that will enhance the quality of undergraduate STEM education. 

Track 3: The Institutional Transformation Projects (ITP) track supports institution-wide structural or systemic changes to enhance undergraduate STEM education at the proposing HSI.

The goals of the HSI program are to enhance the quality of undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and to increase the recruitment, retention, and graduation rates of students pursuing associate's or baccalaureate degrees in STEM.

The program directors will concentrate on providing advice to first time applicants to NSF and the HSI program, partnering with community colleges and common weaknesses found in previously submitted proposals.

All HSI institution types are encouraged to apply, especially PUIs (including community colleges).
