Professor Artiles’ scholarship examines the paradoxes and consequences of educational equity. He served on the White House Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for Hispanics and co-authored a 2017 National Research Council report on the educational success of youth learning English. He and his colleagues led the National Center for Culturally Responsive Educational Systems and the Equity Assistance Center for Region IX. His current work examines cultural and spatial factors in equity reforms for students of color with and without disabilities. He is also documenting how constructs such as “disability” and “inclusive education” can deepen inequities in certain settings and how opportunity structures can be assembled in such contexts.

Dr. Artiles was elected Vice President of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) to lead its Social Context of Education Division. He has received mentoring and research awards from AERA, The Spencer Foundation, and Arizona State University. He is a member of the National Academy of Education and a fellow of AERA and the National Education Policy Center. He was a resident fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences. Dr. Artiles received an honorary doctorate from the University of Göteborgs and is an honorary professor at the University of Birmingham.
