Tiffany Lockett, MS, is a fifth-year PhD student who explores how devaluing social representations of racial minorities in America contribute to bias and disciplinary disparities in school and neighborhood settings. She also examines how restorative and community-based practices can reverse these outcomes for racial minority youth.

Ibette Valle is a third-year PhD student who studies how social determinants of health (e.g., work conditions, health care access) affect family dynamics, educational trajectories, and health outcomes of first-generation college students from Latinx and migrant farm-working background. She is particularly interested in how social, cultural, and familial factors affect the college transition of first-generation college students.
