Dr. Kristina Lizardy-Hajbi
Dr. Kristina Lizardy-Hajbi, Assistant Professor of Leadership and Formation and Director of the Office of Professional Formation, is an experienced educator committed to integrative praxis and liberative transformation within denominational, congregational, and community systems. She is an alum of Iliff (MDiv ’06) and an Ordained Minister in the United Church of Christ, having served as a denominational leader, hospital chaplain, and director of multicultural affairs prior to her current role.
As a scholar-activist, Dr. Lizardy-Hajbi teaches at the intersections of decolonial theology, leadership, organizational change, and research and analysis. Her forthcoming book deconstructs through decolonial perspectives several prevailing embedded themes and practices within religious leadership. Through examining such themes and practices, individuals, congregations, and communities can begin to imagine life together in more mutual and just ways.
