You’ve seen him at orientation and events or while visiting the Honors College. No matter when or where, he’s always there to greet you and talk to you: meet your Dean Juan Carlos Espinosa.

“For me, my main role is to help build FIU by building the Honors College. Since we’re integrated because our students are shared, we support the university in everything. So many of our students who are alumni give back. I think we’re also a model for the importance of diversity, the importance of community and having a sense of humor.
