About the Speaker: Dr. Rodríguez’ research focus centers around concentrated diverse demographics and explores the variation of policy development, implementation, and results and their influence on access throughout the educational pipeline. Prior to residing at Howard University, Dr. Rodriguez spent five years at his B.A. and M.A. degreed alma mater of New Mexico State University as an assistant professor of Educational Leadership and Administration. Dr. Rodríguez received his Ph.D. in Educational Policy & Planning at The University of Texas at Austin in 2009, with an emphasis on education research, evaluation, and policy analysis with a social and cultural historical focus. Prior to his doctoral studies, Dr. Rodriguez has worked in high school and university settings, enhancing college access and success for diverse students. Dr. Rodriguez’ worldview and research have been shaped significantly by having been born and raised in the Texas Borderlands of El Paso to hard-working immigrant parents from Mexico and studying in Germany as a U.S. Congress-German Bundestag scholar.
