Charner Rodgers

Dr. Charner Rodgers is currently teaching in the construction management department at Kennesaw State University as an assistant professor. Before her teaching career, she was a project manager for the State of Georgia Department of Transportation. In this position, she served as a Project Manager with projects totaling over a billion dollars. She has been in the construction industry for over twenty years. She is a general contractor in the State of Tennessee as well as a Real Estate Broker. Dr. Rodgers has built both vertical (commercial, industrial, & residential) and horizontal (interstate, highways, etc.) construction.
She received her Ph. D in Architecture from Georgia Institute of Technology in Architecture and Masters of Engineering in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Tennessee State University. Her undergrad degree was from the University of Memphis in Construction Management.
Dr. Rodgers teaching philosophy is modeled from her learning and teaching experiences as well as her professional experience. During her years as a student, she realized through group projects that students learn in different ways. The ability to accommodate each students learning style is a daunting task for college professors to achieve. With advancements in technology and industry standards, students are no longer engaged in learning through traditional teaching methods. In her classroom, she has developed a teaching philosophy of entertaining while educating using various teaching methods and “real world” experiences.
