Born and raised on the peace-loving island of Puerto Rico, Dr. Javier Morales-Ortiz has walked up and down Latin America listening to the voices of the poor and the oppressed as well as those of the leaders and intellectuals. His classroom tells the world of the dreams and disillusions, the hopes and the failures of the Global South. He is an adventurer with a talent for criticizing world politics with uncompromising ferocity, has a compassionate heart, and a soft sense of humor. His areas of expertise include foreign policy analysis, international organizations, and Latin American politics. Dr. Morales is bilingual, the advisor of the BW Model UN and Model NATO teams, and the advisor of the BW Pi Sigma Alpha Honor Society.
