This chapter explains prior recommendations in the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) magazine Academe, and draws on six years of our own data as participant-observers in one university-based support group to conduct collaborative research to advance equity for Latinos in education, called the Research for the Educational Advancement of Latins Collaborative (REAL). Latina faculty in REAL have employed critical race theory and feminist theories to examine our experiences building a collaborative network of Latina faculty in one HSI university in San Antonio, Texas. Applied Critical Leadership (ACL) as a theoretical lens, people's examines how Latina faculty members in a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) created a network of support and research. Applied critical leadership 'is the emancipatory practice of choosing to address educational issues and challenges using a critical race perspective to enact context-specific change in response to power, domination, access and achievement imbalances, resulting in improved academic achievement for learners at every academic level of institutional schooling in the U.S'.
