What do you love most about FIU and your involvement here?
The Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing and Health Sciences is a vibrant, dynamic and entrepreneurial organization, which offers opportunities to create new initiatives and ground breaking programs for faculty and students.
What advice would you give to a potential donor who is considering investing in FIU?
I am an ambassador for FIU and the Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing and Health Sciences for philanthropic investors to consult with in exploration of their passionate interests and making a significant impact on academic excellence, high quality healthcare, and leadership in producing the top healthcare professionals. I encourage donors to visit campus and take a tour of the vibrant and expanding campus, and to discover the full range of excellent research faculty, top performing students, and academic facilities at FIU. I want to enable donors to fulfill their vision and goals of making a major impact in the lives of students and faculty in the area of their interest.
Why do you think giving back is important to the advancement of FIU and its students?
FIU is a very young major research university with high research productivity, and is one of the largest institutions in the country serving minority students. Many of our students have considerable financial need in order to achieve academic success, matriculate on schedule, and graduate with minimal educational loan debt. In order for FIU to move to the next level of becoming one of the top outstanding research universities in the country, and successfully compete in attracting and retaining the top performing undergraduate and graduate students, we must pursue a significant endowment which will attract and retain highly ranked research faculty in endowed chairs, provide full scholarship support for graduate students, build and maintain top facilities and programs, and support the unmet need of undergraduate students.
(Giving back) is important because we can't do it alone and FIU serves a huge student population - primarily minorities and many first-generation in their family to attend college. We serve a great need, offering accessible, broad-spanning education and, in turn, empower the thinkers and doers of tomorrow.Director of Advancement Relations, College of Arts, Sciences & Education(305) 348-7602 / (305) 519-6494ECS 459ADownload vcardThe University itself is growing everyday.
