Jorge Juan Rodríguez V, Ph.D.
Dr. Rodríguez is the son of two Puerto Rican migrants who came to the united states a year before he was born. Though his mother was raised in the tall, curvy mountains of Barranquitas, and his father in the humid, bustling streets of Rio Piedras, Dr. Rodríguez grew up with his parents, grandmother, and uncle in a small affordable housing community in urban Manchester, Connecticut. His story of diaspora, language, gender, race, and disability has propelled his academic journey, leading him to degrees in biblical studies, social theory, liberation theology, and a Ph.D. in History from Union Theological Seminary.
Dr. Rodríguez currently serves as the Associate Director for Strategic Programming at the Hispanic Summer Program and continues teaching and consulting across Higher Education.
