Dr. Botzman is one of the finest human beings I met in my life. As a Mexican professor, he mentored me in how to get aware of the importance of globalization. He helped me lots to be a successful academic in my country and in the US. Thanks to him. He is such a humble and supportive person. Now I try to follow his example to guide my students from Oaxaca, Mexico, to aspire to a better life. Congratulations of all Misericordia community. Hiring him as President no doubt has been the best decision for all of you. " Hasta la Victoria, Siempre. "

Many congratulations to Misericordia University for the appointment of Thomas Botzman. I met him in 1982 in Mexico while he visited University of the Americas where I served as Vice President. He is a great colleague, well respected nationally and internationally, and an excellent administrator. Many congratulations!
