IDEAL Provostial Fellow

Eujin Park is a postdoctoral research associate at the Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy (IRRPP) at the University of Illinois-Chicago. Park draws upon Critical Race Theory, Asian American Studies and community-engaged research to examine how Asian American youth and families negotiate with race in and through educational institutions.

She recently conducted an ethnographic investigation of community-based educational spaces in the Chicago-area Asian American community, which highlighted the role of community spaces in youths’ educational experiences and understandings of racializing discourses.

Park earned her PhD in educational policy studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a concentration in social sciences and a minor in qualitative methods. She also holds an MA from UW-Madison and a BA from the University of California, Berkeley.
