Regina Cortina, Associate Professor of Education in the Department of International and Transcultural Studies.

Nationally and internationally known for her research on gender equity and education among girls and women in Latin America, Cortina has pursued an active agenda in interdisciplinary, comparative and international research throughout her career. She has studied the migratory circuits that bring large number of Latin American-born students to schools in the United States. Her efforts are aimed at creating a greater understanding of the needs of these students, and she works with teachers and educational leaders to shape policies and practices that will expand educational opportunities for Latino students. This line of research builds upon her earlier work as co-principal investigator of a project funded by Russell Sage Foundation, examining the schooling of immigrants in New York City.

Cortina is strongly committed to producing a new generation of graduate students, scholars and educational leaders who can help to create effective schools for the great diversity of students seeking opportunities to learn and grow in the United States today. Her areas of expertise include comparative and international education; gender and education; the education and employment of teachers; public policy and education; educational attainment among the poor in Latin America; and the schooling of Latinos.
