We are distinguished by a collegial culture that emphasizes collaboration, public service, problem solving and leadership. Our exceptional faculty bring real-world experience, practice, and leading research into the classroom. Passionate about their vocation and committed to integrating theory and practice in their teaching, they are demanding but eager to mentor and readily available to help students succeed along their chosen path.
