Diversity Programs brings you a series of one-hour, guided lecture style discussions and performances with distinguished professors on culturally varied subjects. Join us for happy hour during office hours with Dr. Evelyn Rodriguez this March as we partner with the UCLA Pilipino Alumni Association to bring you this special event.
Evelyn Ibatan Rodriguez is Chair and an Associate Professor for the University of San Francisco’s Department of Sociology, and is the only tenured Filipina at the University. She has previously served as Director of University of San Francisco’s Critical Diversity Studies and Asian Pacific American Studies programs, and serves its Philippine Studies program. She was born in Honolulu, raised in San Diego, graduated magna cum laude from the University of California, San Diego; completed her Ph.D. in Sociology at the University of California, Berkeley; and studies and teaches about race, ethnicity, gender, immigration, and generation. She is the author of Celebrating Debutantes and Quinceañeras: Coming of Age in American Ethnic Communities (Temple University 2013). Her new research explores if and how young adults in the US’ “racial middle” imagine and act upon race, politics, and civic participation.
She is currently Chair and Associate Professor for the Department of Sociology at the University of San Francisco as well as the Asian Women United‘s current president.
