College Deans


Dr. Elizabeth Conde-Frazier

Welcome to Esperanza College! We are committed to your success as a student and to your becoming a professional. We commit to providing for you the support you need to help you succeed in your educational journey. We need you to commit to your own success. This will mean regular attendance, consistency in your study habits, and the motivation to do your best.

Be sure to have goals and expectations of yourself that will help you to discover who you can truly become. Confront your fears with your best efforts, and you will find a whole new you inside who is seeking to grow and express itself in the world in ways that will make a difference.

As you embark on this journey, you may encounter life difficulties that strain your ability to continue. We urge you to do three things: find two persons who will commit to supporting you as you begin this journey so that when these moments occur you can count on their encouragement; communicate in appropriate ways with your professors so they can find ways to accommodate any special circumstances that are necessary; and seek to strengthen your faith as a source for your grounding. Do not seek to quit as a first alternative, but find every way possible to make it to the finish line.

Remember, the Lord is the stronghold of your life, your rock and your fortress. Do not fear. Only be of good courage and go forth toward your goals until you have accomplished them, and then we shall all give shouts of joy for you on your graduation. We will walk alongside you.

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men.
-Paul the Apostle

Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me. 
-Jesus Christ

I am so excited to know that you are considering Esperanza College of Eastern University as the place to prepare to accomplish the dreams God has given you. We are committed to providing you with the opportunity of education in a variety of strategic areas of study. This education is grounded on a foundation of faith in God. We build upon the faith foundation through the use of reason. You can then use the knowledge and skills you have acquired to help bring hope and transformation to our communities through the love of God.

Achieving the dreams God has given you takes hard work and preparation. An entrepreneurial heart and a willingness to help others is also very important. We are here to come alongside of you, help prepare you, and provide you with opportunities to get you started on the path to accomplish your calling. Remember, you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. I can’t wait to see how God uses you for His glory in your community and wherever He sends you.

Abundant blessings to you,
