Susana M. Munoz is Assistant Professor of Higher Education in the School of Education at Colorado State University. She previously served as a faculty member at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee. Her scholarly interests center on the experiences of underrepresented populations in higher education. Specifically, Dr. Munoz focuses her research on issues of access, identity, and college persistence for undocumented Latina/o students, while employing perspectives such as Latino critical race theory, Chicana feminist epistemology, and college persistence theory to identify and deconstruct issues of power and inequities as experienced by these populations. She utilizes multiple research methods as mechanisms to examine these matters with the ultimate goal of informing immigration policy and higher education practices.
