We are very happy to share the news that our department has successfully completed two searches for full-time faculty in Spanish.

Dr. Ana Simón-Alegre

Dr. Sara Aponte-Olivieri

Following last year’s departure of Assistant Professor Rakhel Villamil-Acera, Ph.D. (to whom we wish all the best in her new position), we end the academic year with one more full-time Spanish faculty than when we began.

Pending final approval from the Board of Trustees, it is our distinct pleasure to welcome Dr. Ana Simón-Alegre into our department as an Assistant Professor, and Dr. Sara Aponte-Olivieri as a Lecturer.

Both have sterling academic credentials, impressive publication records, fascinating research backgrounds, and are capable, passionate instructors of Spanish language and Hispanic culture. Please join us in welcoming these two exceptional women into our department!
