Oscar E. Patrón is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Research on Race and Ethnicity in Society and a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Higher Education and Student Affairs program in the School of Education. Oscar received his PhD from the University of Pittsburgh and spent the last two years of his program as a Visiting Scholar and Research Associate at the USC Race and Equity Center at the University of Southern California. His research interests broadly examine the racialized, gendered, and sexualized experiences of Latina/o students in higher education; men of color; student success; and resilience. Oscar's dissertation, which was funded by a National Academy of Education/Spencer Foundation dissertation fellowship, examined processes of resilience that gay Latino men undergo as it relates to social identities that are most salient to them. In doing so, he accounts for the role and manifestation of systems of oppression that underlie the adversity encountered by Latino men.
