Andrea Negrete

Andrea Negrete studies how marginalized adolescents and emerging adults cope with and resist systems of oppression that shape their everyday lives during developmental transitions. She employs quantitative and qualitative methods to understand the role of family, community, and school contexts in youths’ ethnic-racial identity development, understanding of structural inequality, and engagement in social actions to disrupt injustice, with a particular focus on the experiences of Latinx immigrant youth.

Dr. Negrete received her B.A. in Psychology and her M.Ed. in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from the University of Washington, Seattle. She received her PhD in Community Psychology at the University of Virginia. She was born in Guanajuato, Mexico and raised in Mattawa, Washington, a rural farmworker community in central Washington.
