Carola Suárez-Orozco is a Distinguished Professor of Counseling and School Psychology at the University of Massachusetts, Boston and is the co-founder of Re-Imagining Migration. Using mixed-methodological strategies, her work focuses on elucidating the child, adolescent, and young adult experience of immigration—how is their development shaped by immigration and how are they changed by the process? She has studied a wide variety of processes including identity formation, family separations, civic engagement, and the unauthorized experience. Her books include: Children of Immigration (Harvard University Press), Learning a New Land (Harvard University Press), Transitions: The Development of the Children of Immigrants (NYU Press) as well as Immigrant-Origin Students in Community College: Navigating Risk and Reward in Higher Education (Teachers College Record). She has been awarded an American Psychological Association (APA) Presidential Citation for her contributions to the understanding of cultural psychology of immigration. ( )
