Alfredo Garcia is a first year student at Harvard Divinity School and is pursuing a Master of Theological Studies. He is the recipient of the Harvard Divinity School Dean’s Fellowship. His current research interests include Latino Theology in the United States, existentialism, immigration and Latin American thought. Alfredo graduated from Texas A&M University, where he was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa Society, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and a Bachelor of Science in Economics. While attending Texas A&M, Alfredo led the Council for Minority Student Affairs, a student organization that advocates for equal educational opportunities for undocumented students. Alfredo was also the leader of a student working group which, in collaboration with faculty at Texas A&M, created a Latino/a Mexican American Studies (LMAS) minor at the university. Alfredo is currently working on two major projects that aim to help minority (e.g., undocumented, first generation, and Latino) students to pursue a higher education and attend graduate school. Alfredo’s goal is to obtain a Ph.D. in Theology or/and Philosophy and become a professor while simultaneously mentoring minority students.
