UW-Madison alum Mancilla lands faculty post at Edgewood College

July 25, 2016

UW-Madison alumnus Gerardo Mancilla is joining Edgewood College's School of Education as the new director of Education Administration.

Mancilla will also be joining Edgewood’s School of Education as a faculty member, announced Timothy D. Slekar, dean of Edgewood's School of Education.

Mancilla previously served as a dual language immersion teacher with the Madison Metropolitan School District’s Cherokee Middle School. At Cherokee, he served on the AVID site team and the Restorative Justice program, and also was the advisor for the Audio & Video club and the Minecraft afterschool club.

Mancilla earned his Ph.D. from UW-Madison's No. 1-ranked Department of Curriculum and Instruction in 2015, and also received a master's degree in multicultural education from UW-Madison.  His dissertation focused on Latin@ youth counter-stories in a court diversion program using Critical Race Theory and Latino Critical Theory. Mancilla is interested in interrupting the school-to-prison pipeline and addressing the "leaky education pipeline" for Latino students.

Edgewood College is a private, co-educational liberal arts college in the Dominican Catholic tradition in Madison.
