Mentor: Dr. Monica Johnson
Status: PhD in Social and Cultural Studies at the University of California, Berkeley (In Progress)

Research Interests:

Rosalinda is interested in researching equity and access for underrepresented students. More specifically, she focuses on students’ k-12 experience, college-going process, educational attainment, and parental involvement. Her most recent work challenges the construction of parental involvement by identifying the way Mexican parents are involved in their child’s education. She hopes to expand this research by looking at other minority parents and their involvement.
