This presentation will explore how Latine undergraduate students at Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) develop science identities. I will explain how we utilized a critical perspective, multiple theories of identity, and qualitative research methods to capture the lived experiences of our participants. The results of this work provide insights into how Latine students engage with the culture of science and advance our understanding of how to best support Latine students throughout their education.
