Christina Paguyo

Assistant Dean for Student Success & Creativity Sciences

Dr. Christina H. Paguyo is the Assistant Dean for Student Success & Creativity Sciences. Dr. Paguyo’s role reimagines the learning ecology of CAM by exploring how humanizing pedagogies will bolster the CAM curricula and support faculty and staff––strengthening equity and inclusion mindsets, practices, and policies as it relates to recruitment, retention, and well-being. The Assistant Dean for Student Success & Creativity Sciences amplifies support for students who come to CAM with a passion for art, research, making, and creating. Dr. Paguyo will assure fulfillment of a primary goal: to send CAM graduates out into the world confident with purpose, and ready to succeed.

"Dr. Paguyo has an exceptional track record of studying analytics that facilitate student success and writing impactful education, research grants focused on equity, diversity, and inclusion,” says Dean Laurence Kaptain. “We will be asking her how these factors, written into policies and enacted in practices, will influence recruitment, retention, and the well-being of students, faculty, and staff.”

Christina H. Paguyo, Ph.D., comes to CAM from her current role as Director of Academic Assessment with the Office of Teaching and Learning at the University of Denver. Before that, she was a postdoctoral research fellow in the College of Engineering at Colorado State University. Trained in critical theories, learning sciences, and policy analysis, the ballast of her professional trajectory is composed from a long-standing passion to help people thrive and learn with their head, heart, and hands. Paguyo’s research has been featured in the Journal of Higher Education, Journal of the Professoriate, Journal of College Student Retention, Higher Learning Commission, and Inside Higher Ed. She has over $2 million dollars obtained in grant-funded proposals to finance research projects and educational programs, including a current grant from the National Science Foundation for which she serves as Principal Investigator.
