Dr. Alejandro Castrillon Appointed Assistant Professor of Political Science in the Baylor Interdisciplinary Core
“With Dr. Castrillón’s knowledge of history and politics in both Columbia and Venezuela through his academic studies and life experience, we anticipate that his World Cultures V course on Latin American culture will be highly popular among BIC students,” McDaniel said. “We look forward to his contribution to our department and the impact he will have on our students.”
Dr. Castrillón, a recent graduate from Notre Dame, comes to the Honors College after beginning his career teaching at Holy Cross College. He is married to Kristen Drahos, who is a new addition to the GTX faculty, and they both look forward to living in Waco and joining the Baylor family.
“The Baylor Interdisciplinary Core is dedicated to a liberal education enriched by deep questioning and social responsibility,” Castrillón said. “This mission directly aligns with my own academic background, personal interests, and research agenda, and I am thrilled to begin engaging with a distinguished community of scholars and students this fall.”
