Menchaca, Velma D.; Mills, Shirley J.; Leo, Filomena
Administrative Issues Journal: Connecting Education, Practice, and Research, v6 n2 p96-115 Win 2016
This qualitative research examined the journey of renowned female leadership in higher education. Two top level Latina administrators of universities were interviewed extensively to discover their journey to leadership. The theoretical framework used was Latina critical race theory, feminist theory, and counter-storytelling. Themes that surfaced were strong supportive mother, fervent faith, humble beginnings, mentors, intelligence, and challenges not obstacles. These guiding themes serve as a path for Latinas who aspire to higher educational leadership positions.
