Dolores Delgado Bernal, who earned her Ph.D. from UCLA as a first-generation college student, investigates educational (in)equity, Latinx educational pathways, feminista pedagogies, and different forms of resistance.
Her co-authored and co-edited books include: Transforming Educational Pathways for Chicana/o Students: A Critical Race Feminista Praxis (2017), Chicana/Latina Testimonios as Pedagogical, Methodological and Activist Approaches to Social Justice (2015), and Chicana/Latina Education in Everyday Life: Feminista Perspectives on Pedagogy and Epistemology (2006).

“Few Chicanx scholars are unfamiliar with the work of Dolores Delgado Bernal. Her work has validated the unique viewpoints of many Chicanx scholars, who now routinely examine the intersection of gender, class, and ethnicity,” said Anna Ochoa O’Leary, head of the UA Department of Mexican American Studies.
