Biography


Dr. Rivas-Rodriguez has more than 17 years of daily news experience. As a professor, she has taught reporting, journalism history, oral history, covering the Latino community, and Latino policy issues.

Since 1999, Rivas-Rodriguez has spearheaded the Voces Oral History Project, which has collected interviews with over 670 men and women throughout the country. In 2009, the project expanded its scope into the Korean and Vietnam War periods.

She has also taught oral history as journalism as a Study Abroad class in Spain, focusing on the Spanish Civil War and the years of the Franco dictatorship.

Rivas-Rodriguez has been active since her college years in volunteer efforts to bring greater diversity to the news media. She was on the committee that organized and founded the National Association of Hispanic Journalists in 1982. She began two of the NAHJ's most successful student projects: a convention newspaper produced by college students and professionals and a nationwide high school writing contest. The convention newspaper has become the model for other industry organizations as a way to develop mentoring relationships and to train students.
