Faculty & Staff

Our faculty and staff are committed to excellence in teaching, research, and community engagement. With 15 tenure track faculty, multiple adjunct professors, and an outstanding support staff, our department offers a broad range of research topics while still being small enough to provide each student, undergraduate or graduate, personal attention and guidance.
