Nino Rodriguez is a two-time alumnus of the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign where he received his B.S. in Recreation, Sport, and Tourism with a concentration in Sports Management and his M.A. in Education Policy, Organization, and Leadership (EPOL) with a concentration in the Social and Cultural Studies of Education. His thesis Watering Seeds: The Socialization of African American Male Adolescent Masculinity explored: (1) masculinity ideologies of adolescent Black males; (2) the agents of socialization that helped shape their masculinity ideologies; and (3) the impact that their masculinity ideologies had on their lives thus far. Currently, Nino is a fourth year doctoral student in EPOL exploring the influence American institutions have on the socialization of masculinity for adolescent Black males. While on campus, he has worked with the Office of Minority Student Affairs, Illinois Leadership Center, Division of General Studies, and the Office of Inclusion and Intercultural Relations on efforts and initiatives to support underrepresented students. In addition to his scholarly pursuits and civic engagement on campus, Nino has been an active member in the Champaign-Urbana community working with adolescent males in the local school districts and community organizations.
