The topic will focus on improving educational outcomes for Hispanic males, and it will feature the work we are doing with Project MALES and our new Texas Education Consortium for Male Students of Color. We invite all of you to join this important conversation which will also highlight the work of My Brother’s Keepers, President Obama’s new initiative focused on males of color.

In partnership with leading national scholars, our very own Dr. Victor Saenz has co-authored a new book from Stylus Publishing called “Men of Color in Higher Education: New Foundations for Developing Models for Success.” The book was officially released at the 2014 conference of the American Educational Research Association. Stylus hosted a book-signing event (see photo below) for this new collaboration that features creative new thinking on new models of success for males of color in higher education. Dr. Saenz co-authored a chapter with Dr. Beth Bukoski, Assistant Professor at Louisville University, on Latino male masculinities. For more information about this new book, please visit the Stylus Publishing website.
