Before coming to The University of Texas at Brownsville (UTB), Dr. Becerra-Barckholtz was a student and an intern for the National Institute of Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) and the Community College Leadership Program both at the University of Texas at Austin. She also worked as a student-athlete academic mentor for the 2005 - 2006 Texas Longhorn Men’s Basketball Team.
Betty received her B.A. in Mexican-American Studies and Spanish from Concordia University at Austin. She completed her Master's degree in Sociology from UTB and then her Doctorate in Higher Education Administration from the University of Texas at Austin.
While she still enjoys reading, this picture is simply a glimpse into her past life as doctoral student at UT Austin. Now, she simply enjoys reading children’s books… to her three year old son Tex.
