Dr. Nicole M. Guidotti-Hernández earned a bachelor’s degree in literature from the University of California Santa Cruz and master’s and doctoral degrees in English from Cornell University.
Previously, she was an associate professor of gender studies at the University of Arizona and was the inaugural chair of the Department of Mexican American and Latina/o Studies at the University of Texas at Austin. She was the founding director of the Mellon Mays Program at UT.
During her tenure as the Inaugural Executive Director of the Mills Institute, Guidotti-Hernández worked closely with alumnae and was instrumental in creating a strategic plan, a plan of research, and graduate certificates that focused on Gender and Racial Justice, DEI, and Disability advocacy.
Promoting BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) and queer access to higher education, leadership positions, and DEI best practices rounds out her experience as a public-facing intellectual and industry leader. She writes for and has served on the Ms. magazine editorial board for two decades and provides media expertise on Latinx and Feminist issues with regularity.
In May of 2024, she will direct the Dialogues in Civilization course, “Mexico City: Gender and Migration.”
