Bro. Cristobal Salinas Jr., a Doctoral candidate in the School of Education at Iowa State University, is an active member of ACPA – College Student Educators International, and the Committee on Men and Masculinities. The national award recognizes exceptional, journal-quality research related to men’s development. In addition, he served as the 2014-2015 Scholar-in-Residence for the Committee on Men and Masculinities.

Cirstobal’s research explores the economic, social and political context of educational opportunities for historically marginalized communities, with an emphasis on Latino/a students. His dissertation, English, Espanol and Academia: The Cross-Over Socialization of Multilingual Latino Male Faculty in Education is a phenomenological study that explores how Latino male faculty members make meaning of their socialization in the field of education. He will be graduating with his Ph.D. in Higher Education. Again, Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity would like to congratulate Bro. Criss on his work and dedication within Higher Education and the overall Fraternity.
