Adele Lozano

Adele Lozano, Student Affairs Administration, received the award for 2021 NASPA Region IV-East Research and Practice Grant from NASPA (National Association of Student Personnel Administrators) Region IV-East. Lozano's research examines the ethnic identity development of self-identified Latinx students who do not speak Spanish. Given that this is a growing population in the U.S., she is interested in how they make meaning of their ethnic identity, how they navigate assumptions made about their ethnicity, and how higher education professionals can gain a deeper understanding of the complex diversity within Latinx student populations.
