This college boasts some of the finest faculty around. They’re experts in their fields. They’re also really great people. Get to know your experienced — and also very approachable — faculty members who are eager to share their knowledge with you, and who will continue to question and challenge common assumptions alongside you. Our faculty are thinkers and doers. Working together, we're out to make the world a better place.
Students, here’s a bit of advice. The friends you make in college will be your friends for life, and will influence what you do and how you think throughout your lifetime. So choose wisely. Some of the best friends I made as a student were Plato, Henry David Thoreau, and Margaret Mead. Our faculty are eager to make similar introductions for you, and invite you into the great conversations through which we define ourselves and our world. Take us up on it. Let us help you make new friends, and join in those great conversations.
Nobody tops our faculty for excellence in scholarship, research, teaching, advising and engagement; and they’re rewarded for it quite often. See our latest faculty achievements below.
