    KIMBERLY A. REYES is a doctoral candidate in Higher Education at the University of Michigan’s Center for the Study of Higher and Postsecondary Education (CSHPE). Her dissertation research, both historical and sociological in nature, examines how the scholarly training of African American students in prestigious academic departments contributed to an intellectual movement that discredited biologistic ideas of racial inferiority in the first half of the 20th century. Other than her interest in intellectual change, her faculty-led projects have examined the culture of STEM departments that are deeply engaged in diversity efforts, as well as the creation of institutional policies that affect educational access for undocumented immigrant students.
