Tina Trujillo is an associate professor at the University of California, Berkeley’s Graduate School of Education. She is an expert on education inequality, federal educational policymaking and test-based educational reforms. Trujillo’s research focuses on the politics of educational change, national and state accountability policies, and the relationships between different international political contexts and schools’ promotion of democratic values.

She is also interested in the connections among nature, well-being, and learning. She is an executive committee member of the UC Berkeley Center for the Science of Psychedelics (BCSP), and is exploring how the BCSP’s education efforts can advance the use of psychedelics as tools for mending individuals’ relationships with their communities.
