Edwin Hernandez is an Associate Professor and Coordinator of the Counseling Program in the College of Education at California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB). His scholarship examines how institutions policies and educator practices support or hinder the educational experiences, opportunities, and wellness for racially minoritized students along the educational pipeline. His current research falls under three strands of work: 1) investigating the role of alternative high schools and educators in supporting and/or hindering racially minoritized students educational attainment; 2) examining school counselors understanding and practices to dismantle racialized discipline practices that harm racially minoritized youth; and 3) exploring the teaching and supervision of school counselors of Color at Minority-Serving Institution (MSIs).

Before joining CSUSB, he was a research associate for the Institute for Immigration, Globalization, & Education at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). His teaching and research interest are inspired by his professional experiences as a bilingual school counselor and youth counselor in alternative high schools. Edwin received his Bachelor’s degree in Sociology with a minor in Chicana/o Studies from California State University, Northridge, a Master’s degree in Bilingual School Counseling from New York University, and his Ph.D. in Education from UCLA.
