Rossier's Scholars of Color Lecture Series - Speaker: Dr. Mike Hoa Nguyen



Mike Hoa Nguyen is assistant professor at the University of Denver's Morgridge College of Education and faculty affiliate at the Scrivner Institute of Public Policy and the Interdisciplinary Research Institute for the Study of (In)Equality (IRISE).  His research examines the benefits and consequences of public policy instruments in expanding or constraining the operations of colleges and universities, with a specific focus on federal diversity initiatives. This agenda falls into two policy strands: (1) how the federal Minority Serving Institution (MSI) program serves as a vehicle for academic institutions to enhance student success by advancing the political agendas of communities of color and (2) the influence of the judicial branch, as a policy-making body, in regulating the role of racial diversity at colleges and universities.  Additionally, he has written extensively on race-conscious admissions, community colleges, the educational experiences of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, and equity-based funding models for colleges and universities. He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of California, Berkeley and his graduate education at the University of California, Los Angeles.
