Sergio Fernando Juárez grew up in Santa Barbara, CA. His family originates from Jalisco and Durango Mexico. He attended Santa Barbara High School and graduated in 1999 but as a first-generation student from migrant parents he had some trouble navigating college and it wasn’t until 2010 that he received his bachelor’s degree from CSU Channel Islands. Afterward, he attended New Mexico State University (NMSU) and received a master’s in Communication Studies in 2012. Following NMSU Sergio attended the University of Denver (DU) and received his PhD in Communication Studies.

Before coming to Fresno State, Dr. Juárez was a lecturer for California State University Channel Islands, Loyola Marymount University, and California State University Northridge. His scholarship has centered on understanding the social construction of difference (i.e. race, sexuality, gender, class, ability, and more) through communication critical paradigm theories of Chicanx, Black, and Queer feminist scholarship. His research interests are currently centered on education contexts, influencing his goals that include the development of new institutional structures by leveraging technology to construct anticolonial inclusive educational practices and structures.
