Dr. Chang is a Lecturer and Student Teaching Coordinator in the Bilingual/Bicultural Education Program. She is from Taiwan, and received her doctorate from the University of Washington. As a first-generation college student, Dr. Chang's professional training in Multicultural/ Multilingual Education has urged her to be a cultural broker and an advocate for minority and underrepresented students, making learning Mandarin more equitable for everyone.
Much of her research is tied to exploring the sociocultural perspectives of language acquisition (in and out of school contexts), how cultural practice, gender stereotype, social class, ethnic heritage, and racialization interact with learning and shape students' identity development and influence formal pedagogy. Dr. Chang's academic interests are Chinese languages and linguistic diversity, and Teaching Chinese as a Second Language.
