Hello, my name is Arturo Rodriguez; I am the Assistant Director who oversees the Supplemental Instruction Program as well as Special Programs. I assist with departmental leadership roles such as strategic planning as well as oversee and develop the Supplemental Instruction program in conjunction with the SI coordinators, faculty, students, and SI Leaders. In addition, I also collaborate with THINK TANK professionals to provide leadership in developing a hybrid model of support that includes use of a cross section of Tutors, Academic Skills Tutors, and SI Leaders.
I have a Master’s degree in Language, Reading and Culture and I’m currently a doctoral candidate in the Center for the Study of Higher Education at the University of Arizona. I am from South Tucson and a first generation college graduate. My goal is to enhance access and success for all students who aim to acquire post-secondary degrees and beyond.
