Felipe De Oliveira Fiuza wants to make the Language and Culture Resource Center at East Tennessee State University more inclusive of international students, not just those with Hispanic heritage.

Fiuza joined the ETSU faculty in August 2017 as director of the LCRC and clinical assistant professor of Spanish. This literature scholar and translator says he is excited about the challenge of uniting the international community with the rich culture of East Tennessee.

“I am what people call a generalist in my field,” said Fiuza, “someone who can work in different areas.”
