UW-Madison's Minero receives grant, new advocacy role

August 31, 2017

UW-Madison’s Laura Minero recently received a grant from the Latino Center for Leadership Development (LCLD) to conduct a study titled, “Impact of Detention Proceedings and Solitary Confinement of Latinx UndocuTrans Populations.”

Minero is a Ph.D. student with the School of Education’s Department of Counseling Psychology.

Minero will receive funding for the project, and will also travel to Texas to give a talk about her research at an event hosted by the LCLD-SMU Policy Institute.

Minero was also selected to be the APAGS Advocacy Coordinator for the North Central region from 2017-19. The role includes representing and advancing graduate student interests at the state and national level.

Both of these accomplishments reflect Minero’s interests in policy, research and mentoring.
