LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCE: A CUBAN AMERICAN WOMAN EDUCATOR AND AN AMERICAN CUBAN MAN LAWYER

BORN IN CUBA, RAISED IN MIAMI, FIRST DEGREE FROM UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI, THE SECOND ONE, A DOCTORATE IN PSYCHOLOGY, FROM YALE
SHE IS A CUBAN-AMERICAN, PRESIDENT OF ONE OF THE LARGEST UNIVERSITIES IN AMERICA, COMMITTED TO EDUCATION, PROVIDING CHANCES FOR THOSE WHO CANNOT OTHERWISE GET AN EDUCATION. SHE IS OPENLY GAY

THE OTHER ONE IS BORN IN MIAMI OF CUBAN PARENTS, EDUCATED AT UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI, POLITICAL SCIENCE AND THE SECOND DEGREE IN LAW, PAID OF HIS STUDENT LOAN OF $100.000 WORKING AS A LAWYER. ELECTED A SENATOR FROM FLORIDA, HE IS HOPING TO GARNER THE REPUBLICAN PARTY'S NOMINATION FOR PRESIDENT
HE IS AN AMERICAN-CUBAN AND IT IS OBVIOUS WHAT HE IS COMMITTED TO. IT IS CERTAINLY NOT THE  ORDINARY PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN AMERICA
A member of the UW faculty since 1986, Cauce became interim president in March 2015, having previously served as provost and executive vice president, and the UW Board of Regents selected her to become the UW’s 33rd president at a special meeting Oct. 13, 2015.
Throughout her career, Cauce has championed access to higher education, including through the Husky Promise, which provides full tuition to eligible Washington students who otherwise could not attend college. As part of her strong belief in ensuring access to higher education for all, just one month into her role as interim president she engaged students in an honest discussion about race and equity, launching an effort to create a more just and diverse community.

The UW also views innovation as an imperative, and as part of that in June 2015 Cauce announced the launch of the Global Innovation Exchange. A partnership between the UW and Tsinghua University, with foundational support from Microsoft, GIX will educate the next generation of innovators through a project-based, globally focused curriculum available nowhere else.
Raised in Miami after emigrating with her family from Cuba, Cauce earned degrees in English and psychology from the University of Miami and a Ph.D. in psychology, with a concentration in child clinical and community psychology, from Yale University.
During the course of her career at the UW, Cauce has been appointed to various leadership positions, including director of the UW Honors Program, chair of American Ethnic Studies, chair of Psychology, executive vice provost and dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. In 2011 Cauce was named provost and executive vice president, responsible for overseeing the education, research and service missions of the university’s schools, colleges and other academic units.
For her teaching, scholarship and advocacy, Cauce has received numerous awards, including the Dalmas Taylor Distinguished Contribution Award, the Luis Fernando Esteban Public Service Award, the James M. Jones Lifetime Achievement Award of the American Psychological Association, the Grace Hopper Exemplary Leadership Award and the Distinguished Contribution Award from the Society for Community Research and Action. In 1999 she was awarded the Distinguished Teaching Award, the highest honor the University of Washington gives to faculty members for their work with students in and outside the classroom.

FROM BBC ABOUT RUBIO

Where Rubio stands

  • Immigration: Used to be pro-citizenship but now takes a harder line
  • Iran: Will undo nuclear deal "on day one"
  • Pro-life: Right to life "trumps virtually any other right"
  • Healthcare: Repeal Obama's signature law that extends insurance to millions
  • Climate change: No evidence that humans responsible
  • China: Promises to "get tough" about human rights
  • Gun laws: Violence is due to mental illness


The former brings GLORY to the University of Miami, the latter just INFAMY.
Any intelligent person can see the difference.. A Cuban American is not the same as an American Cuban
