Biography

Chandra Crudup is the Associate Dean for Inclusive Design for Equity and Access in the Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions and a Clinical Associate Professor in the School of Social Work at Arizona State University (ASU). She is the Interim Director of the Studio for Creativity, Place and Equitable Communities, and an affliate faculty in The Design School. She recently served as the Downtown Represenative for the Faculty Women of Color Caucus at ASU. Her practice experience is in school social work. She recently served as the vice president of the Critical Mixed Race Studies Association and continues to organize the Critical Mixed Race Studies Conference where she curates and manages the arts and cultural components of the conference. She is dedicated to transforming social work research, pedagogy and practice through acknowledging the practices of oppression and exploitation in U.S. history by finding ways to dismantle the systems that perpetuate these practices. Other research interests center hair identity, multiracial identity, interracial relationships, and use of theater and storytelling as a mechanism for change in communities. From her work with youth to community building and engagement, both locally and nationally, she combines a lens of collaboration and artistic expression through storytelling to build community, transform pedagogy and practice, and expand aspects of research while dismantling systems of oppression.
