Carola Suárez-Orozco is a Professor in Residence at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and the Director of the Immigration Initiative at Harvard. She is also the co-founder of Re-Imagining Migration. Her research focuses on elucidating the child and youth experience of immigration—how is their development shaped by immigration and how are they changed by the process? A focus on school settings has been an enduring theme in this work as schools are a first contact point between the immigrant children, their families, and the new society. Her books include: Children of Immigration, Learning a New Land, Transitions: The Development of the Children of Immigrants, Education: Our Global Compact in a Time of Crisis, among others. She has been awarded an American Psychological Association (APA) Presidential Citation for her contributions to the understanding of cultural psychology of immigration and is a member of the National Academy of Education.
