Patricia Márquez is Dean of the Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies at the University of San Diego, the first stand-alone school of peace and justice in the United States. The Kroc School prepares students from around the world—including countries affected by violent conflict—in peacebuilding, human rights, conflict resolution and social innovation. Since her arrival at USD in 2007, Dr. Márquez has developed the Center for Peace and Commerce (CPC), the Social Innovation Challenge and the USD Changemaker Hub. Previously, Dr. Márquez was a professor and Dean at IESA, a School of Business in Caracas, Venezuela. Her research centers on the intersection of business and social value creation, with an emphasis on poverty alleviation through market mechanisms.  In 2016, Dr. Márquez received the San Diego Business Journal Women Who Mean Business Award and in 2017 she was given the San Diego Downtown Breakfast Rotary Club Peacemaker of the Year Award.
