Dr. Julissa Ventura is an assistant professor in the Department of Educational Policy and Leadership (EDPL). Before coming to Marquette, Dr. Ventura was a Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellow in the School of Education and Department of Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder. Her research sits at the intersections of Latinx education, critical youth studies, and community-based education. Through critical ethnography and participatory methods, Dr. Ventura’s research sheds light into the different ways in which community-based spaces and practices foster Latinx students’ sense of belonging, academic identities, and critical consciousness. As a community-based researcher, Dr. Ventura prioritizes relationship-building and the knowledges of Latinx communities in her work in order to build equitable and mutually beneficial research partnerships for social justice. Dr. Ventura has engaged in community partnership work in Madison, WI and is excited to work on new and existing partnerships between Marquette University and Milwaukee communities through her research and teaching.
