Cerezo, McWhirter, Peña, Valdez, and Bustos (2013) described a critical consciousness of experiencing a political consciousness of being a minority student in higher education.  Cerezo et al. (2013) developed an education program for people of Hispanic decent with critical race theory centering evaluations of racism, challenging dominant ideology, committing to social justice, honoring experiential knowledge, and recognizing a historical context and interdisciplinary perspective.  Miriti (2020) discussed the resilience and cultural wealth underrepresented minority faculty can bring to institutions of higher education beyond the dominant culture.  Counter stories may also provide a resource for establishing dialogue on critical issues (Hiraldo, 2010).  Hiraldo (2010) explained how counter stories of critical race theory may benefit the assessment of climate of higher education institutions.
