Dr. Lupita Montoya was the first Latina engineer to be hired on a tenure track at the University of Colorado Boulder. Despite support from her department, external reviewers, and leading experts in her field, the university denied her tenure and classified her research with communities of color as “service.” Montoya is now pursuing legal action based on the documented discrimination she has faced at CU Boulder that claims a commitment to inclusive excellence.
