“I left the HERI institute feeling inspired and reinvigorated not only because of the new knowledge I obtained but also because of the amazing conversations I was able to have with other higher educational professionals in regards to their work in this field. Learning about their battles and accomplishments took my passion and commitment for diversity and inclusion research in higher education to another level and I am forever changed because of it.” –Kathy Martinez, Framingham State University
