Lindsay Pérez Huber

Dr. Lindsay Pérez Huber is Professor in the Social and Cultural Analysis of Education (SCAE) master's program in the College of Education at California State University, Long Beach. 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. Her research specializations include race, immigration and higher education, racial microaggressions, and critical-race gendered methodologies and epistemologies. Her work is known for further developing theoretical and conceptual frameworks in Critical Race Theory (CRT), bridging CRT and Chicana Feminist perspectives in Education, and for her contributions in understanding Latinx undocumented student experiences. Ultimately, the goal of her work is to create greater education and life opportunities for Communities of Color. Dr. Pérez Huber has served as 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 She is also a National Academies Ford Foundation Fellow and Visiting Scholar at the UCLA Center for Critical Race Studies (CCRS).
