Graduate Center Professor Colette Daiute (Educational Psychology, Psychology, Urban Education) was elected a member of the National Academy of Education (NAEd). She is one of 22 “exceptional education scholars” to be elected to the academy this year and the only one from CUNY.
 
“This diverse group of scholars is at the forefront of those who are improving the lives of students in the United States and abroad through their outstanding contributions to education scholarship and research,” NAEd President Gloria Ladson-Billings said in an announcement.

Daiute specializes in research, writing, and teaching on human development in challenging and rapidly changing circumstances. Her research focuses on social, cognitive, and emotional development of children, youth, and adults in situations of displacement, migration, political violence, increasing cultural diversity, and inequality.
 
Her current project, DACA at 10, focuses on how educators and community organizers have worked with DACA-eligible youth to navigate alternatively hopeful and cruel immigration policy reversals. She recently launched a podcast series How Ideas Travel, with the Piaget Society for the Study of Knowledge and Development.
 
Daiute’s recent books include Human Development and Political Violence (Cambridge University Press); International Perspectives on Youth Conflict and Development (Oxford University Press); Narrative Inquiry: A Dynamic Approach (Sage Publications); and Minority Educators – Roma in Serbia – Narrate Education Reform (University of Belgrade Institute of Psychology and Education).
