Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to consider the responses of Ricardo Romo, a former president of the University of Texas at San Antonio, to a student-led hunger strike in 2010 in relation to his own experiences as a student during the Civil Rights Movement. Drawing on Latina/o Educational Leadership and Applied Critical Leadership, this study utilizes historical methods to shed light on how past lived experiences frame the responses of university leaders from racially minoritized backgrounds. In connecting the past with the recent past, this chapter adds to the understudied body of work on Latinx leadership in higher education and provides an example for how university leadership may respond to student activists on their campuses.
