Sandra M. Pacheco, Ph.D. is Associate Professor in Interdisciplinary Studies. She received her doctorate in psycholinguistics from the University of California, Santa Cruz. In her more than 20 years of experience in higher education, she has had the opportunity to develop new academic and student programs focusing on issues of diversity and educational equity.

Her teaching, research, and activist work focuses on Chicana, Latina, and Indigena feminisms and spirituality, and critical psychology. Her most recent work focuses on curanderismo, which takes her regularly to Oaxaca, Mexico for research and continuing study as a practitioner of ancestral healing traditions from the Zapotec lineage. Locally, she is co-founder of Curanderas sin Fronteras, a women’s healing collective that is dedicated to serving the health and well-being of under served communities through traditional medicine.
