Ph.D., Univ. of California, Berkeley (1993)
A.B., Univ. of Chicago (1985)
David Cruz-Uribe received his A.B. from the University of Chicago in 1985, and his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1993. He has been on the faculty at Trinity College since 1996.
His philosophy of teaching is best summarized by the name Janis Joplin gave to her third and final band: Full Tilt Boogie. Whether he is teaching introductory calculus, advanced mathematics courses or a first year seminar on literature and film, he throws himself head first into the material and invites his students to dive in after him. He is forced to admit, however, that (to paraphrase Shakespeare) sometimes he teaches not wisely but too well.
Professor Cruz-Uribe is a professed member of the Secular Franciscan Order, a Catholic religious community of lay men and women.
