Biography

During her tenure at ASU, Joanna Lucio has been integrally involved in hands-on learning opportunities and promoting student success through undergraduate research, curriculum development and her work as an Honors faculty member.

She is associate professor in the School of Public Affairs, and was named associate dean of academic affairs in 2018. She is also affiliated faculty with the Southwest Interdisciplinary Research Center. 

Lucio joined ASU in 2006. Her research explores how urban governance, planning and policy impacts diverse groups in society. She works to advance the rights of disenfranchised residents through the evaluation and analysis of housing and neighborhood policies and programs, particularly for low-income residents.

The work has had an impact on the local community. In a recent project with one of her doctoral students, city of Phoenix housing officials made program changes based on the findings by encouraging housing managers to seek resources they did not know existed and to collaborate with resident service coordinators to deliver more resident-focused services. In one of her service-learning classes, her students developed a policy white paper for redeveloping brownfields in downtown Phoenix into spaces for the arts.

In 2016, she was recognized as the college’s Emerging Community Solutions Scholar.

Lucio holds a doctorate in urban and public administration from the University of Texas at Arlington

Education

Ph.D. Urban and Public Administration, University of Texas-Arlington
