Eveline Chang’s teaching role in Berkeley Social Welfare was expanded to allow her to become the School’s first full-time lecturer. In addition to teaching several social welfare courses, Chang leads an independent study to assist students in designing and implementing a series of social justice inclusion events throughout the academic year.
Chang has spent more than 25 years developing and managing integrative, community-based programs rooted in social justice, activism, multicultural leadership development, popular education, self-determination and community wellness.
She previously served as the manager of program development and training at the Oakland-based Women’s Cancer Resource Center. Her additional experiences include managing the WCRC In-Home Support Program, serving as director of youth programs with the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California and working with several vibrant multicultural youth empowerment and community organizations in Chicago, Detroit and Houston. She currently serves as a consultant facilitator with the Posse Foundation.
Chang earned her MSW at the University of Michigan School of Social Work in interpersonal practice and community organizing, and she has integrated these approaches throughout her career. An avid lifelong learner, she continues to study and integrate the practices of cultural humility, anti-oppression work, restorative practices, mind-body medicine and the ancient art of Qigong.
