I want to increase access to Agnes Scott for more U.S. Latinas. Further increasing the diversity of the student body will benefit not only the scholarship recipients but will also enrich the entire campus community.
Dr. Gutierrez-Spencer is creating two new funds to further diversity and position students for economic mobility at Agnes Scott:
“My time at Agnes Scott challenged my own preconceptions, further sparked my interest in equity and gave me the motivation to pursue a career in academia.”
“For the good of our country and our planet, the histories, languages, and cultures of the globe should be a central focus of our modern educational system.”
Dr. Gutierrez-Spencer’s gift is fighting systemic disparities:
14.4% of the Agnes Scott student body is Hispanic/Latina
