Seminar Series

Throughout the academic year, CCWT will host at UW-Madison a visiting scholar-practitioner active in the areas of career advising, labor market issues, and work-based learning in order to cultivate dialogue on these issues for students, staff and the broader community. In scheduling speakers for the Seminar Series, the Center aims to bring renowned scholars and respected practitioners to share their insights on research findings and policy developments that impact student employability and their career development.

In addition, we are hosting free online webinars featuring scholars and practitioners active in college-workforce policy, research and practice. Watch recordings of past webinars from this series about the latest findings on college internships, implications for college students amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, and discussions regarding equity and social justice in higher education.

Dr. Adrian H. Huerta is an Assistant Professor of Education in the Rossier School of Education at the University of Southern California. His research focuses on boys and young men of color, college access and equity, and gang associated youth.

This study draws from two-part qualitative interviews with former gang members who earned four-year and advanced degrees. Findings center on the precollege experiences, motivations to enroll in college, and processes of becoming a collegian.
