While there is much research around Latinos in higher education little is written on the experiences of Latinas alone. This thesis looks to fill that gap by analyzing the experiences of Latinas at a selective predominantly White liberal arts women’s college. This study is conducted through the personal analysis of the author’s experiences and looks to shed light on how institutions of higher education can create a better campus climate for Latinas.

This thesis is restricted to the Claremont Colleges current faculty, students, and staff.
