Eduardo Pazos

Assistant Dean of Student Affairs for Inclusion and Diversity & Director, Rachel Lord Center of Religious and Spiritual Life

Eduardo Pazos is Bowdoin’s Assistant Dean of Student Affairs for Inclusion and Diversity, and Director of the Rachel Lord Center for Religious and Spiritual Life. He does not represent any one religious tradition, but rather guides and coordinates the faith groups on campus encouraging interfaith understanding, dialogue, and education. 

He is available for counseling on issues of ethics, faith, and spirituality. Eduardo also acts as a liaison between students and the religious leaders and faith communities in Brunswick and midcoast Maine.

Born and raised in Mexico, Eduardo moved to Massachusetts to attend Boston Baptist College and went on to earn a master’s degree at Yale Divinity School. After graduating from Yale, Eduardo went on to work in financial aid and adjunct teach at his alma mater. He later moved to Texas to work with immigrant families as a pastor and chaplain, where he provided pastoral counseling to students and parents in moments of crisis and led a Spanish speaking ministry. Most recently he has worked in business and finance, but Eduardo maintained a connection to spiritual and religious life and education, adjunct teaching online courses titled Old and New Testament Survey, and Contemporary Worldviews. Eduardo and his wife, Nichole, reside locally in Maine with their two young daughters, Eden and Elena.
