Capital Times highlights doctoral candidate Delgado-Guerrero’s work in Q&A

July 30, 2014

Marla Delgado-Guerrero -- a doctoral candidate with UW-Madison’s Department of Counseling Psychology -- and her research examining mentors’ roles in keeping minority students in college is highlighted in a Q&A published in The Capital Times.

Marla Delgado-Guerrero
The newspaper reports how Delgado-Guerrero is studying “psychological, social, and cultural factors that influence academic persistence for marginalized communities in higher education.” The Cap Times also notes how, as an undergraduate student, she helped found the Madison chapter of Lambda Theta Alpha, a Latina sorority, and in the last year was honored as a Bouchet Scholar and named a UW-Madison Outstanding Woman of Color.

“I really love working for programs that have a focus towards creating social change or creating support for underrepresented groups,” she tells the Cap Times. “Those may be minority groups, it may be for sexual orientation. But ultimately I aspire to be in academia in terms of administration, making policies and decisions at the dean’s level, perhaps even a chancellor someday. Who knows? But being at the decision-making tables and bringing my research into it. And I would also like to teach as an adjunct professor, giving myself flexibility to be in a number of different roles.”
