Dr. Año Nuevo Kerr was a pioneering scholar in her field and made a lasting impact on dozens of students and colleagues. Her dissertation, The Chicano Experience in Chicago: 1920 – 1970, was a breakthrough in the study of people of Mexican descent in the midwest. She served for nearly 10 years in academic and administrative roles at UIC, eventually becoming the Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.
