For our professors, teaching isn't a profession — it's a passion. Our professors take students beyond the classroom, sharing their fields of expertise through research and mentoring. More than 90 percent of our full-time professors hold the highest degree in their fields. All faculty members schedule time for student appointments before and after class, and they are eager to work in partnership with students, providing them with personal attention and involving them in cutting-edge research. Proof of our faculty's outstanding achievements in research and scholarship is borne out by more than $32 million in research and funding that was obtained within a given year.
