Boricua College says

The full-time faculty of Boricua College are known as Educational Facilitators. "Facilitation" has been implemented as a method of instruction for nearly thirty years to fulfill Boricua's non-traditional mission and goals.

Neither detailed planning nor comprehensive documentation and assessment can ensure the integration of Boricua students' learning experiences without the work of the Educational Facilitator. Facilitators are the key figures in the College's educational program.

Performing a faculty role virtually unknown in traditional institutions, each Boricua Facilitator is responsible for the educational development of twenty-two students, whom they meet with individually and in small groups each week of the learning cycle.

The Facilitator works with students in a transactional process to achieve a synthesis and mastery of the skills, knowledge, and values required for life-long learning and for professional and scholarly competence.
