Paul Rogers

George Mason University
Professor and Director
United States
I am passionate about helping people to learn the competencies associated with changemaking. I am especially interested in helping people develop as communicators for social change. My PhD is in education (UCSB, 2008), and my area of specialization is teaching and learning of language, literacy, and composition. For the past five years I've been working to establish social innovation programming here at George Mason University. We created a minor, an interdisciplinary masters, and a center for social entrepreneurship, but we're just getting started. My ultimate goal is work on a high functioning team that helps develop changemaking capacities in millions of people around the world. Ashoka fellows are lighting my way.
