Awards

2019 Recipient

Cristina Santamaría Graff
Indiana University - Purdue University at Indianapolis

Dr. Cristina Santamaría Graff is an assistant professor of special education in the School of Education at Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). She created a Families as Faculty Project—an authentic and sustained teaching and learning partnership between Latinx
families of youth with disabilities, local disability service organizations, and students in the IUPUI Urban Teacher Education Program. Her unique transformative, reciprocal community partnership challenges the status quo by centering parents’ knowledge of their own children, supporting educators’ culturally responsive practices, and attending to issues of power and oppression in the relationships between special education professionals and family members of youth with disabilities.

The Exemplary Contributions to Practice-Engaged Research Award is presented to an education research scholar or scholars in recognition of collaborative project(s) between researchers and practitioners that have had sustained and observable effects on contexts of practice.
