Tania Hogan represents the next generation of leaders and visionaries in our field. In the true tradition of BUENO, she is humble, yet able to speak out forcefully when needed. She is passionate about the cause for social justice in education, and a well known and beloved educational leader in our state. She will honor BUENO’s past, while moving the Center to its next level of excellence and prominence.”

In anticipation of her near start date, Dr. Hogan explains, “I am most excited about collaborating with the BUENO familia and community to cultivate current programs that already have solid roots, while developing and creating new opportunities for us to explore collectively and bring about transformational change in pursuit of educational equity. I look forward to doing work that “vale la pena” and humanizes, engages, sustains and empowers our communidad.”
