Edwin Hernandez is an Assistant Professor in the Counseling Program in the College of Education at California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB). His research examines the role of institutional culture and educators on the educational opportunities, experiences, and pathways of racially minoritized students. More specifically, his scholarship focuses on the policies and practices that promote or hinder the educational experiences, opportunities, and success for racially minoritized youth who have been pushed out of traditional schools and consequently enrolled at high need and underserved schools, such as continuation high schools. Another strand of his work explores the training and development of graduate students of color in school counseling programs in the practice of asset-based approaches to engage with racially minoritized youth, families, and communities.
Before becoming an assistant professor 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 continuation 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.
