EDD Program Representative – Eddie Boquilla
Eddie Boquilla is a second-year doctoral student in the Doctorate of Education program at MLFTC. He was elected to be the representative for ED.D. students. His military service as a U.S. Army Combat Engineer with 173rd Airborne 54th Engineer Sappers from 2009 – 2014 (12-13 OEF) motivated him to return back to school and help other veterans in need. He later went on to achieve a Masters in Legal Studies at the ASU Sandra Day O’Connor School of Law and began consulting veterans in higher education and reintegration. His ongoing research is on pedagogy, veterans in higher education, and developing innovations that will assist veterans in their post-military reintegration to achieve academic success.
