Dr. Torres García earned her Ph.D. in Cultural Studies and Social Thought from Washington State University. Currently, she is the Director of the TRiO Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement Program and has taught in the fields of Chicano Studies, Sociology, Women's and Gender Studies at Eastern Washington University and Chicano Studies at Yakima Valley Community College.
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.
Apart from running the Ronald E. McNair Program, Dr. Torres García is working on a textbook manuscript for a Chicano Studies course.
