Keiser University’s Flagship campus celebrates the dedication of Enrique Suarez, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs as part of Hispanic Heritage Month.
Suarez joined Keiser University’s Flagship campus in 2018 and in his spare time continues to volunteer with various nonprofit groups in the areas of disaster recovery and the development of educational programs for disadvantaged communities.
With over 25 years of experience in higher education, Suarez began the journey in 1997 as a University of Puerto Rico Business Administration Department faculty member teaching accounting and information technology courses. Immediately finding his passion for teaching and leading students on the right path of education, he was thankful to then serve as Program Director and Associate Dean.
“The chain reaction of helping Puerto Rico after hurricane Maria went viral with Enrique’s help and leadership,” said Juan Pagan, President of the Florida Hispanic American Chamber of Commerce of how Suarez played a key role in helping the Palm Beach County Cares organization with Puerto Rican relief efforts through his many high-level contacts. “He is a very professional individual person and respected in our community,” he said.
Suarez now oversees Keiser University Flagship Campus programs in Information Technology, Applied Engineering, Business Analytics, Sport Management, Integrated Marketing Communications, and more. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting from the University of Puerto Rico and a Master of Science in Management and Computer Information Systems from the University of Detroit.
