Community of Practice for Student Success
When: Thu, Apr 27 2023 12:00pm - Thu, Apr 27 2023 3:00pm
PLEASE RSVP FOR ZOOM LINK
INVITATION TO FREE HISPANIC SERVING INSTITUTION (HSI) INTERSECTIONALITY CONFERENCE SERIES
Thurs. April 27, 2023, 12 pm - 3 pm MDT
Dr. Christopher Erwin will discuss his work, "Quantitative intersectionality and student success at HSIs: two examples using administrative data," which describes the motivation and step-by-step implementation of regression-based methods for quantitative intersectionality. The empirical approach to quantitative intersectionality is described in simple terms to facilitate the use of these methods in future studies of inequality in the social sciences. After motivating the empirical approach, Dr. Erwin walks through two examples which illustrate how to apply these approaches using real world data, with a focus on some common estimation issues and data limitations that often arise. The talk concludes with policy implications aimed at better understanding systematic inequality in the education system both in the U.S. and abroad. Dr. Erwin is an economist specializing in the study of labor markets, education, and inequality at Auckland University of Technology (AUT) in New Zealand. His studies on educational inequality employ quantitative intersectionality and Critical Race Theory to estimate disparities in educational attainment, earnings, and health outcomes using regression based methods.

Dr. Jorge Ballinas will review his work, “Accounting for the Constraints and Resources Toward College Enrollment Among the Children of Latina/o/x Immigrants.” This presentation is based on qualitative research in the U.S. Northeast with firstgeneration students from low-income backgrounds, who are also the children of Mexican immigrants. Dr. Ballinas will highlight
- The importance of considering how these students’ social characteristics (e.g. class background, nonwhite racial status, etc.) influence the constraints and difficulties encountered along the transition to college
- The necessity of providing these students with enough resources — especially programs that connect and familiarize these students, while still in high school, with what to expect once they reach college — to counteract such constraints and
- Implications for college completion among these students. Dr. Ballinas is a first generation college student and Postdoctoral Scholar in the Population Research Institute at Penn State University.

WHAT IS INTERSECTIONALITY?
“Intersectionality is a way of understanding and analyzing complexity in the world, in people, and in human experiences. The events and conditions of social and political life and the self can seldom be understood as shaped by one factor. They are shaped by many factors in diverse and mutually influencing ways. When it comes to social inequality, people’s lives and the organization of power in a given society are better understood as being shaped not by a single axis of social division, be it race or gender or class, but by many axes that work together and influence each other.…People use intersectionality as an analytic tool to solve problems that they or others around them face (Collins and Bilge 2016:2).”
“We caution that ‘Latino/Latina’ as a social construct must be problematized, that is complicated by differences in national origin, citizenship, race, class, and ethnicity and by the confluence of these factors. An intersectional approach acknowledges these differences and seeks to reveal and understand how they shape experience. When we use the term Latinas, it is not as a unitary term that homogenizes distinctive groups, but as a term of implicit solidarity with other U.S. groups with a Spanish colonial history and genealogical, political cultural and ethnic ties to Latin America (Baca Zinn and Zambrana 2019: 678).”
