One student once said, “if you have Prof. Torres in a morning class, you won’t need coffee. He will keep you awake.” His enthusiasm and high energy are two of his most notable characteristics.

Prof. Torres is a natural mentor, and he is always involved in projects that help our students. His Puertorican background helps him connect well with minority students, especially Hispanics.

Black Lives Matter

The death of George Floyd, the events of this past week and the sustained violence of systemic racism in the United States compel me to write today.

We know this is a hard time.  We care about our students.  We are listening and we are here for you.

We are committed to justice, an end to racism and all forms of oppression so people everywhere can be free and live their fullest potential.

Black Lives Matter.
