Martha A. Rivas, Ph.D.

Dr. Martha A. Rivas is a first-generation college and postgraduate scholar. Dr. Rivas dedicated 15-consecutive years at UCLA, earning bachelor degrees in comparative literature, Chicana/o Studies, master’s and Ph.D. in education. Originally from Zamora, Michoacán, Mexico, she was raised as middle child in a working-class family in Indio, California. Dr. Rivas taught undergraduate and graduate courses in critical race theory, research designs, qualitative methods, educational policy and leadership, and Chicana/o Studies at UCLA and Cal State Northridge. However, for the last 15 years Dr. Rivas has dedicated her training and knowledge to support federal and nonprofit agencies develop culturally-appropriate evaluative practices and to engage in community praxis. Dr. Rivas is a proud mother of two young girls, Alicia-Ixchel and Sol-Inez. Dr. Rivas is also an avid runner, artist and writer. She writes, unapologetically, to bring about critical consciousness about educational issues impacting Communities of Color, particularly young Women of Color.
