“We Make the Road by Walking: A Chicano's Trials and Triumphs in the Ivory Tower." As a recently-minted Ph.D. (2011), Dr. Castillo will engage in a critical autobiography that explores the struggles and successes of university life as a first-generation lower-income student of color. Having filled different "shoes" in higher education (student, faculty, mentor, advisor, activist, organizer, and insider/outsider) Dr. Castillo seeks to recover important narratives about struggle, sacrifice, failure and success that are relevant to students and emerging scholars.
