Anne-Marie Núñez, PhD is the inaugural Executive Director of the Diana Natalicio Institute for Hispanic Student Success and Distinguished Centennial Professor in Educational Leadership and Foundations at The University of Texas at El Paso. Her work employs sociological approaches to examine how multiple social identities (e.g., racial, ethnic, class, linguistic) shape educational opportunities. She has published several studies on the higher education experiences and trajectories of Latine, first-generation, English Learner, working, and migrant students. As a national expert on Hispanic-Serving Institutions, her co-edited book Hispanic-Serving Institutions: Advancing Research and Transformative Practice, the first ever to focus on HSIs as organizations, won an International Latino Book Award. In her work to expand inclusive science approaches, she serves as principal investigator of the first ever million NSF-funded HSI Center for Evaluation and Research, which advances culturally responsive evaluation and research to support HSIs in creating STEM pathways for diverse students. In over million of funded projects, she has collaborated extensively with the Computing Alliance of Hispanic-Serving Institutions (CAHSI), an alliance of over 80 HSIs and other partners, to raise Hispanic attainment in computing fields. Dr. Núñez has served as a member of the NSF Advisory Subcommittee for STEM Education and on the national technical review panel of experts to advance the Carnegie Foundation's new Social and Economic Mobility classification. An American Educational Research Association Fellow, she has also been recognized in Education Week's Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings as among the top 200 scholars in the U.S. influencing educational practice and policy.
