Professor in the Department of International Languages, Literatures, and Cultures. Denise is a scholar in Spanish linguistics with an emphasis on second language acquisition. Her scholarship and professional achievements attest to her commitment to creating inclusive and equitable learning environments for all students, most notably those with learning disabilities or differences, heritage language learners, and second-language learners. She has published two books and has a third under consideration. She received an HFA International Fellow Award to develop a summer study abroad program in Quebec, Canada. Another current project is to have Spanish declared the “co-official language of California.”
