Once an undocumented immigrant from Guatemala and raised in Richmond, California in a family of eight, Dra. (Doctora) Aurora Chang is now an assistant professor in Teaching and Learning at Loyola University’s School of Education, where she teaches coursework on multicultural education, school reform, undocumented students, Chicana Feminist Epistemology, and urban schooling. Chang’s research focuses on the intersection of education, identity and agency within traditionally marginalized communities. Currently, she focuses on undocumented students' paths of educational survival, resistance and persistence, how these experiences affect the "American" sociopolitical landscape and what educators can do to support them. Her most recent book is titled, "The Struggles of Identity, Agency, and Education in the Lives of Undocumented Students: The Burden of Hyperdocumentation."
