Dr. Victor Rios is Associate Dean of Social Science and Professor of Sociology at the University of California, Santa Barbara.   He received his Ph.D. at the University of California Berkeley in 2005.  Professor Rios has worked with local school districts to develop programs and curricula aimed at improving the quality of interactions between authority figures and youths.  Using his personal experience of living on the streets, dropping out of school, and being incarcerated as a juvenile—along with his research findings—he has developed interventions for marginalized students aimed at promoting personal transformation and civic engagement. These programs have been implemented in Los Angeles, California (Watts); juvenile detention facilities; and alternative high schools.  He is also the author of six books including, My Teacher Believes in Me: The Educator’s Guide to At-Promise Students (2019); Street Life: Poverty, Gangs, and a Ph.D. (2011); Buscando Vida, Encontrando Éxito: La Fuerza de La Cultura Latina en la Educación (2016); and Human Targets: Schools, Police, and the Criminalization of Latino Youth (2017).

Dr. Rios has been featured in the Chronicle of Higher Education, Ted Talks, the Oprah Winfrey Network, Primer Impacto, and National Public Radio.  He has had the honor of meeting President Obama and advising his administration on gun violence and policing.  His Ted Talk “Help for kids the education system ignores” has garnered over 1.4 Million views.  He is the subject of the documentary film The Pushouts (thepushouts.com).

Creating equitable systems, a culture of learning, and capacity to implement relevant learning opportunities for all students.
Four years ago, the Merced Union High School District (MUHSD) was at a crossroads; new superintendent, entirely new cabinet,13 new site administrators, and an ingrained culture of top down leadership. The MUHSD saw the opportunity to disrupt the educational system and provide a relevant education for all students in and out of the classroom. Five years later our College and Career Indicator is in the top 10% in California with 75% of our students identified as SED. Come learn about our failures and successes in our continued effort to improve each year.
