Claudia Galindo

Associate Professor of Education Policy at the University of Maryland, USA

About the author:

I investigate underserved students’ school experiences and their academic and social-emotional learning, with special attention paid to the immigrant/Latinx populations. My interdisciplinary research also investigates key mechanisms in families and schools that may perpetuate or ameliorate inequalities, including family, school, and community partnerships.

What I want to achieve:

As a Latina scholar, my professional goals stem from a life-long commitment to addressing inequities and social injustices in education through centering the perspectives and experiences of underserved students, families, and communities. I contribute to systemic educational change by generating relevant research on salient issues, mentoring aspiring scholars, and disseminating research to multiple audiences.
