Latinos in Science: Trends and Opportunities
Rochin, Refugio I.; Mello, Stephen F.
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v6 n4 p305-355 2007
In U.S. coverage of leadership in science and engineering (S&E), Latinos are generally dismissed from consideration. The pipeline metaphor tends to ignore advances made by Latinos in completing doctoral degrees in S&E. New data suggest a better metaphor, the pyramid of higher education, for understanding the progress of Latinos in S&E. Questions addressed include, what fields are pursued? What is the citizenship of Latino doctorates? What are the baccalaureate origins of Latina/o doctorates? What roles do community colleges and Hispanic-serving institutions play in serving Latinas/os? (Contains 18 tables and 16 figures.) [Appended to this document are Appendix A, which provides definitions of "science" and "engineering;" and Appendix B, which describes the Carnegie Classification system for postsecondary institutions.]
