Prof. Miguel A. Guajardo

Miguel A. Guajardo, Ph.D. 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 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 is grounded in local ecology and guided by equity, dignity, and democracy in cross-cultural settings. His teaching, research, and service plan is informed by a micro-macro integrative theory 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.
