The friendly faculty and staff in this active learning community are interested in helping intellectually curious students succeed. And our dedicated faculty members have expertise in a wide variety of areas across many disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. Characterized by their passion for what they teach, our professors eagerly share their high level of knowledge in their subjects.
