As part of this prestigious honor, Chávez-Moreno will attend the annual AAHHE Conference March 8-10 in Irvine, Calif., where she will be presenting her dissertation research, “Constructing and Challenging Dual-language Immersion as White Property: A Critical Race Ethnography Examining Racial Ideologies in a New Latino Destination.”

“I am grateful that I will be able to attend and participate in AAHHE’s national conference, where I will be introduced to Chicanx/Latinx professors and administrators from across the nation,” says Chávez-Moreno. “I also will be privileged to have an AAHHE mentor to help me navigate my transition into a career in academia.” 

Chávez-Moreno will also have the opportunity to engage in informal discussions on research interests with AAHHE members, develop a policy brief under the guidance of an AAHHE member and network with other AAHHE members.

The American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education is entering its thirteenth year and continues to address issues and concerns affecting Hispanics, with a focus on higher education.
