Judd Renken is a committed college instructor.  Having taught at several colleges and universities, he demonstrates his dedication to making a difference in the array of courses he has taught and in the varying student bodies he has effectively instructed. Judd Renken’s transdisciplinary focus was foreshadowed in his two Master’s Degrees.  His first post-graduate degree is from Wake Forest University in Communication (Rhetoric).  His second is in Philosophy from DePaul University where he also received Certification in Women’s Studies.  Judd has taught over a dozen different courses in at least four separate disciplines.  Recent years have called upon him to place the vast majority of his professional energy into teaching; however, he continues to attempt to make a contribution to Heidegger Studies and Post-structuralism through reading, writing and appearing at academic conferences.
