Mark Henry Jurado
Research Associate, Center for Inter-American and Border Studies (CIBS)

Dr. Jurado' s areas of focus are achievement motivation and educational resilience among first-generation, low-income youth. A student capacity-building approach is a critical aspect of my approach to ensuring highly individualized student support. Despite adversity, student-based factors (motivation, commitment to seriousness, self-assessment, and goal clarification) can facilitate postsecondary persistence to the baccalaureate and beyond. I am passionate about self-perceptions of high achieving students who defy the odds.
