Longtime Norwich Spanish professor Joseph “Jose” Miana has passed away

From President Richard Schneider:
It is with great sadness that I inform you of the death of former longtime professor Joseph “Jose” Miana. Prof. Miana began teaching Spanish at Norwich in 2000 and dedicated over 14 years of service to the university. He retired in December 2015. Known for his impeccable dress and passion for teaching, Prof. Miana was beloved by Norwich students, as demonstrated in a March 2014 Guidon article that profiles him. On behalf of the Norwich community, I offer my condolences to Jose’s family and friends.
