"Teaching is not just our duty as scholars, it is our path to self-discovery"
Viladrich's Teaching & Mentorship
My teaching trajectory spans more than two decades now, beginning in Argentina where I taught classes on social sciences and health at several well-regarded institutions, including the University of Buenos Aires. My goal in teaching is to inspire a passion for learning about the intricacies of culture and health with respect to immigrants and ethnic minorities. In the U.S. I have developed teaching curricula for Master and PhD programs for different institutions, including Columbia University, The CUNY Graduate Center, Hunter College and Queens College — where I currently teach. Among my recent curricula, I have developed writing intensive seminars on immigration research, culture and medicine and social science research methods.
Since 2015, I have also been a mentor for the CUNY Faculty Fellowship Publication Program (FFPP) where, along with a team of selected faculty, I work with junior scholars to help them advance their writing skills and publication records. Finally, as a Latina immigrant myself, I have the additional responsibility of becoming a role model for students and scholars (including immigrants and children of immigrants) who, as in my case, are the first members of their families to achieve higher education in the US.
