Miguel A. Guajardo is a Professor in the Education and Community Leadership Program and a member of the doctoral faculty in School Improvement at Texas State University. His research interests include issues of community building, community youth development, leadership development, race and ethnicity, university and community partnerships, and Latino youth and families. He was a Fellow with the Kellogg International Leadership Program and the Salzburg Seminar.
He is the co-founder of the Community Learning Exchange, an emerging interdisciplinary community of practice that unites the power of place and the wisdom of people to advocate and work towards community change. Dr. Guajardo’s work has been informed by local ecology and the values of equity, dignity, and democracy in cross-cultural settings. His teaching, research and service agenda is informed by a micro-macro integrative theory that is grounded in practice. A sample of this work is highlighted in the 2016 book he published with a team of colleagues: Reframing Community Partnerships in Education: Uniting the Power of Place and Wisdom of People.
