July 15, 2016—“Juan-Carlos Molleda starts each day with a cup of freshly ground Colombian coffee and a good dose of NPR. Then he scans The New York Times, Washington Post, Oregonian, Economist and his Twitter feed to see what’s happening in global news.

“‘It’s a challenge to remain optimistic, but for me it’s a priority,’ he says.

“Optimism is a given for the new Edwin L. Artzt Dean of the School of Journalism and Communication, who also brings a fresh perspective and a firm commitment to ensuring a vibrant future for the SOJC.

“‘I have big shoes to fill but I am so excited,’ Molleda said. ‘I will be articulating the message of the school and building bridges not only in local and state communities, but nationally and internationally. I’m also looking forward to collaborating with my colleagues and helping them achieve greater heights.’

“Formerly chair of the Department of Public Relations at the University of Florida, Molleda created and directed UF’s online master’s program in global strategic communication, was an affiliated faculty member of UF’s Center for Latin American Studies, and served as a Fulbright senior specialist.”
