Marla A. Franco, Ph.D., serves as the Assistant Vice Provost of Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) Initiatives and the Executive Director of Assessment, Research, and Grant Development at the University of Arizona (UA). She led efforts at the UA that resulted in the university being recognized as a federally designated HSI in 2017 and is now working across the full scope of the university enterprise to develop a centralized vision for optimizing this designation in a way that truly benefits students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members from diverse backgrounds. Her research expertise is centered on understanding the implications of negatively perceived campus climates for diversity on the cognitive outcomes of Latinx college students. She has also published on topics such as transforming STEM education at HSIs and assessing the capacity of HSIs to serve Latinx students.
Guadalupe Lozano, grew up in Argentina. She is an Associate Research Professor of Mathematics and serves as Director for the Center for University Education Scholarship (CUES). She is also a Co-Founder of the STEM in HSI Working group at the University of Arizona, in Tucson. Lozano's work focuses on transforming undergraduate STEM education at Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSI), a joint effort with her STEM in HSI working group at UA, initially funded by the National Science Foundation. Lozano has been involved in K-12 and undergraduate math education initiatives which inform her current work. Her projects have included: (1) the national training of educators in the Common Core Mathematics Standards, (2) the writing of reform calculus curricula, (3) the writing of national recommendations for deploying active-learning practices in undergraduate mathematics, (4) the quantitative assessment of the impact of active-learning pedagogies on the conceptual learning of calculus, and (5) and the establishment of cross-institutional faculty collaborations for streamlining the transition from community colleges to the university.
