Dean of Students
I also fondly remember frequent encouraging interactions with him as a colleague. He truly desires to collaborate and build those up around him, again embodying a genuine belief in collaboration and what seems to be a Christian ideal of inspirational brotherly love. He is a good guy.
Luis proved to be an excellent fit for our community. He understood how every employee in the academic building we shared, from housekeeping- maintenance, to secretarial staff, to academic support, and faculty colleagues all contribute to the educational enterprise.
Luis has not only a strong mind, but a big heart and many interests and skills. I guess that is a long way of saying, “I know Luis well, and I like what I know.” I learned that he is a popular and and effective teacher in the area of technology use in education (my field as well). Dr. Almeida is a fine teacher and person.
I have heard from my professional friends and colleague at IUP that Luis is a star there, an up-and-coming teacher/scholar with a bright future and boundless energy. I can say that he is open, adaptable, and a pleasure to work with on a daily basis. I cannot say enough good things about Luis Almeida.
Luis has been a valuable addiction to Indiana University of Pennsylvania and the department of communications media. He is a very strong teacher and scholar and has a deep commitment to supporting our students and the work of the faculty. I'm completely satisfied with his performance and attitude.
