General Studies Faculty


In addition to our regular faculty, we employ several highly skilled affiliate faculty members to teach general education courses. Many of these faculty have earned the highest possible degrees in their respected fields or are on the cutting edge of professional work and experiences. They bring to the classroom a commitment to faith-based education, academic rigor, and the same passion for teaching as you’ll find from our full-time faculty.
