At its beginning as Nueva Esperanza Center for Higher Education, Rev. Luis Cortés and President David Black formed an advisory body designed to develop the partnership with both institutions’ best interests in mind.
The College Council has been a policymaking and guiding hand that over the years has led the development of Esperanza College from its initial stages as a program to becoming an established branch campus of Eastern University. Over the years the Council has hired deans who could move this vision forward. In addition, Rev. Danny Cortés has served as Chairman of the Council and is currently Academic Chair of the Eastern University Board of Trustees.
