Dominick Rolle is a Jackie Mclean Fellow and Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of English. Prior to arriving at the University of Hartford, he served as one of the Provost's Predoctoral Fellows for Excellence Through Diversity, based in the Department of Africana Studies, at the University of Pennsylvania. He received his Ph.D. in English and African Diasporic literature from Emory University where he also taught a multiple award-winning undergraduate course which interrogated intimate partner violence against women. Emory's "Men Stopping Violence Course" and internship opportunity was a community-engaged learning course pipeline which challenged undergraduates to interrogate male intimate partner violence against women from practical and theoretical perspectives. Additionally, his teaching interests include courses in twentieth-century African Diasporic literature and online education. At the University of Hartford, Dominick enjoys teaching courses in twentieth century African Diasporic literature while contributing to important diversity initiatives more broadly. A distinguished U.S. Navy veteran, Dominick is also a former regional veteran peer support specialist for the Virginia Wounded Warrior Program and he previously served as a youth counselor for the city of Charlottesville, VA from 2008-2010.
