Monica Marie Sanchez ’13

Monica Sanchez is an Ethnic Studies and Education Studies concentrator, originally from New Mexico. Her senior thesis in Ethnic Studies explores the experiences of students and teachers from the Tucson Mexican American Studies department that was shut down by the State of Arizona. In this work she sought to uncover students and teacher voices and better understand how to support low-income minority students in school. Post-Brown Monica hopes to work with educational non-profits and policy makers to ensure that programs that support students, especially ethnic and cultural studies, are fostered in schools.
