Estela Zarate-  Professor (Ph.D in Education from UCLA, B.A. in Mathematical Economic Analysis and Public Policy from Rice University in Houston, Texas)

Background: Dr. Zarate has previously served as the Director of Educational Policy Research at the Tomas Rivera Policy Institute at the University of Southern California and as a faculty member at the University of California, Irvine. Her research interests include equitable access to higher education, college persistence among first-generation students, the educational trajectory of Latino students, family and social context of Latino students’ educational experiences, schooling conditions, and gender differences in schooling experiences. Dr. Zarate’s interest in college access stemmed from her outreach recruitment efforts while an undergraduate student at Rice University, and later when she became an admissions counselor at Carleton College in Northfield, MN. Dr. Zarate is the current Program Coordinator for the M.S. in Educational Administration and/or Preliminary Administrative Services Credential (Tier I) Program.
