    Dr. Torres García earned her Ph.D. in Cultural Studies and Social Thought from Washington State University. She directs the TRIO Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement Program and has taught in the fields of Race and Culture, Chicano Studies, Education, Sociology, at Eastern Washington University. Dr. Torres Garcia currently serves, and has for the past six years, as the WSTA Public Relations and Networking Committee chair and become the 2016-2017 President of the Washington State TRIO Association, which is a catalyst in Washington State for progressive initiatives that promote educational equity, access, and opportunity for traditionally marginalized student populations. 

    Her research interests and studies focus on historical, social, and political issues affecting Chicanas/Latinas in the Pacific Northwest. Her interest in illustrating the dynamic modus operandi of the intersections of systematic layers of oppression has resulted in reclaiming the voices of Chicanas and Latinas whose life stories enrich academia today.

    As a Chicana from Mexican farm working background and first-generation college student, Dr. Torres García's life dedication is to raise critical consciousness among students by unveiling social inequalities and empowering marginalized groups to become agents of positive change and engage them in civic responsibilities.
