She addressed the United States Congress to advocate for greater funding for Hispanic Serving Institutions on behalf of the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, and then was among a handful of presidents invited to a summit with Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona to strategize on how higher education can reprioritize student success. As a follow up to that summit, she published an opinion piece in the American Council on Education's "Higher Education Today" blog.

This year, US News & World Report ranked the University of La Verne #6 nationally for social mobility of students.
