A Message from the Dean!


Welcome to the Albizu University Miami Campus’s Fall 2021 Semester! As we prepare for the classes, I want you to know that I am committed to supporting your development as a professional and a global citizen! Our office is here to ensure that you are engaged and supported throughout your academic journey at Albizu University and beyond. If you encounter an unexpected obstacle along the way, we are here to help. Please take advantage of opportunities to engage in the events and opportunities we offer to enhance your educational experience.  We believe that student engagement is a part of the  fabric of your education; this is why every Monday an email goes out of my office with the week’s events, announcements, and reminders. Take advantage of these events that are developed with you in mind. We use several forms of communication, social media, texts, website, and email to promote activities – so keep an eye out for opportunities to engage.

I am privileged to serve as your Dean of Students and focus my leadership on creating an engaging and inclusive experience. If you have an idea for a workshop, event, or want to be involved, email me at farbelo@albizu.edu or email student council – at student_council@albizu.edu. We want you to reach your personal potential while pursuing your educational goals.
