An Analysis of Dr. Anna M. Ortiz's Research: Developing a Foundation in Ethnic Identity Development.
Hubbard, Steven M.
Dr. Anna Ortiz is a scholar who explores the ethnic identity development of college students and the experiences of underrepresented college students in a context in which white culture represents the norm in higher education. This paper explored the background and research of Dr. Ortiz. Her research has been influenced by her cultural and educational experiences, her professional experiences, and her feminist perspective. The work of Anna Ortiz on ethnic identity development comes from psychosocial development models, with the work of A. Chickering a marked influence. The primary method of research conducted by Ortiz is qualitative. This paper reviews some of her research studies in the areas of ethnic identity development, the cultural identity of college, and the deconstructing of Whiteness. As a research, Dr. Ortiz is not afraid to challenge the current system to ask important questions about higher education and cultural identity. (Contains 13 references.) (SLD)
