Bio

Dr. Lindsay Pérez Huber is Assistant Professor in the Social and Cultural Analysis (SCA) master's program in the College of Education at California State University, Long Beach. She teaches graduate-level courses in the SCA urban education context. Dr. Pérez Huber's research agenda is concerned with using interdisciplinary perspectives to analyze racial inequities in education, the structural causes of those inequities, and how they mediate educational trajectories and outcomes of students of color. In addition, she examines how those students challenge and resist the oppression they encounter within and outside of education. She has conducted studies within each segment of the educational pipeline including K-12 schools, community colleges, and four-year universities. Ultimately, the goal of her work is to create greater education and life opportunities for Communities of Color. Dr. Pérez Huber is past Vice President for the Critical Race Studies in Education Association (CRSEA), a national organization of critical race scholars, activists, and educators committed to racial justice in education across the P-20 spectrum (see www.crseassoc.org). She is also a National Academies Ford Foundation Fellow and Visiting Scholar at the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center (CSRC).

Dr. Pérez Huber is co-coordinating the 2015 UCLA Latina/o Education Summit, "Still Falling Through the Cracks: Revisiting the Latina/o Education Pipeline" bringing together researchers, policymakers, students and community members to theorize strategies and offer recommendations for improving the Latina/o educational pipeline in California.This is a special tenth annual event. For more information, click here.

October 2014

Dr. Pérez Huber is lead author on the 2014 UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center research report titled,

"DACAmented in California: The Impact of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program on Latina/os." The federal DACA program, enacted in 2012, has helped thousands of undocumented students pursue their dreams of a college education by protecting them from deportation. The authors assess the impact of the program for Latina/os in California. Access report here:

Dr. Pérez Huber is lead author on the 2014 UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center Latino Policy and Issues Brief titled,

"The Growing Equity Gap for California's Latina/o Students." Although recent studies suggest that educational attainment for Latina/os has been improving, the authors show that when demographic change is taken into consideration, it is clear that Latina/o students in California are not making gains but falling further behind.
