Graduate Student Profiles
Paula Abitia had always wanted to attend her “dream school,” CU Boulder, yet as a first-generation student of color, the reality of her dream included the struggle for a sense of belonging. She credits higher education professionals with helping her get through challenging times, and now she is paying it forward as a higher education professional and MA graduate.
How can we do this together in a nicer, kinder and more loving way? This key question guided PhD graduate Paty Abril-Gonzalez through her doctoral dissertation at CU Boulder and still guides her in her teaching and research as an assistant professor at the University of Texas at Austin.
As a former high school teacher and advocate for community empowerment, MA graduate Ben Erwin realized that he had a passion for the public policies that shape the educational field. “After my time in Mississippi in advocacy, I realized I wanted to pursue a career in education policy,” Erwin said.
