Rodney Greer, Ed.D.

Adjunct Faculty,
Department of Leadership and Administration

In addition to instructing for American College Education, I am a full-time Business Management instructor for a Native American Community College. I am a member of the Chickasaw Tribe and I am honored to be able to serve my fellow Native Americans in higher education. Previously I instructed Business courses for Northern Arizona University.

My business career began right out of college by developing and sustaining a profitable computer sales and service business. Most of my career has been in technology management that began with specialization in email, and then more significant professional challenges to include global IT infrastructure project management, IT operations management, data analytics, global governance and quality management.

Overall, I can share 25 years of professional experience working for some of the most prominent high technology organizations in the world: Hitachi Data Systems, Siemens Business Services, Western Digital, and Computer Science Corporation. Now I have come full circle where I can share my life experiences, education, and professional skills while collaborating with students who also aspire to be highly successful throughout their futures.

My wife and I love to travel and learn all about international cultures. I met my wife Maria in Madrid, and I married in Spain just a few years thereafter. Presently we reside in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We have two boys (adults) now – Alex has a degree in Graphic Arts and is an illustrator and Andres is completing his Business degree. Maria and I love to hike around New Mexico in Spring and Fall (too hot during the summer). We have two wonderful Maltese dogs Sophie and Cloud. I love music (blues and rock n’ roll) and play the harmonica.
