    This article centers on the institutional barriers Latinas face in their professional development. An autoethnographic approach is employed to explore common themes faced by Latinas that hinder their success via the lens of culture conflict theory. This study specifically focus on issues related to interactions with students, marginalization, and institutional racism. A set of individual and institutional-level recommendations that may serve to alleviate the challenges facing Latinas, and faculty of color in general, are discussed.
