Craig Rodgers, Psy.D., J.D.
As Program Manager for Military Student Services, I have the honor of working with Harvard College students who are current or prospective ROTC participants (cadets and midshipmen), veterans, or have other military affiliations. If you are in any of those categories or if you are otherwise involved with any of those students, please feel free to contact me with whatever's on your mind. I'm here to help!
For nearly two decades prior to my current position, I provided broad-based academic and personal support to Harvard undergraduate and graduate students as a counselor at the Bureau of Study Counsel. I especially enjoyed working with many of our first-gen students, BGLTQ+ students, and students involved in complex Title IX cases. I also founded and ran AAPEX (Athletic, Academic, & Personal Excellence), Harvard's former in-house sport psychology program for varsity athletes. In those capacities, I accompanied students on their journeys of self-discovery as they navigated Harvard and figured out how to use this place to help them become their best, most authentic selves.
Prior to working at Harvard, I earned my SB and SM (MBA plus thesis) degrees in business at MIT. As an undergraduate there, I enlisted in the US Army Reserve and also joined Army ROTC at MIT, where I was subsequently commissioned. After graduation, I worked for years as a field instructor and course director at various wilderness-based experiential education programs such as Outward Bound. I then returned to school to study at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (EdM in Adolescent Risk & Prevention) and at the George Washington University (PsyD in clinical psychology and JD in law). I'm certified in performance and sport psychology (CMPC-AASP) as well.
I love exploring the Greater Boston area via slow, non-competitive, recreational running with campus-based programs such as Harvard on the Move (HOTM) and the Harvard College Marathon Challenge (HCMC), so please feel free to ask me about those, too!
