Lazaro Camacho named to AAHHE Faculty Fellowship Program

The American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education (AAHHE) has named Lazaro Camacho, assistant professor of College Student Personnel, to the AAHHE Faculty Fellowship Program, whose primary goal is to prepare Latina/o/x faculty for successful careers in academia and beyond by increasing the number of tenured and promoted Latina/o/x faculty.

The program is geared towards new faculty who are beyond their first year on the tenure track,  providing strategies to assist tenure track faculty in achieving their scholarly and career goals, build community and network with other Latina/o/x faculty, and develop future leaders who are dedicated to uplifting their communities.

Camacho’s scholarship centers the intersection of identity development and educational pathways through a focus on men and masculinities, men of color, intersectional socialization, leadership development, and mentorship.

Camacho earned his Ph.D. in Educational Leadership from Florida Atlantic University, and both his M.S. in College Student Personnel and B.S in Kinesiology from the University of Rhode Island. Before transitioning to the role of faculty, he spent 13 years working in student affairs, in areas such as housing and residence life, wellness, student development, and academic advising.

Camacho is also a faculty affiliate with the University of Texas at Austin’s Project MALES. He serves as a member of the Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice (JSARP) Editorial Board, and he is the NASPA Region I Faculty Liaison.
