Tribute to Raymond Buriel (1948-2017): A Passionate Advocate for Chicana/o Studies and A Pioneer of Latinx Psychology
Perez, William
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v39 n4 p403-411 Nov 2017
On June 21, 2017, the fields of Latinx Psychology, Chicana/o-Latina/o Studies, and education lost a trailblazing researcher, teacher, and mentor. Dr. Raymond Buriel made significant contributions to the study of acculturation and adjustment of Mexican immigrant families, with a special emphasis on the characteristics of immigrant students that are conducive to academic success. His seminal and widely cited publications on the psychological development of children who serve as language and cultural brokers for their families were among the first to illustrate the myriad of developmental assets of immigrant students. Buriel's reputation as a mentor and advocate for countless undergraduate students, graduate students, and early career scholars was legendary. Affectionately referred to as "Papa Buri" by his Latinx undergraduate students, his legacy will continue to be felt in psychology and education. Many of his students now hold academic, research, policy, and administrative positions in major institutions and are leaders in their fields.
