Meet Our Faculty

 

Teaching is the top priority here.

And FSC’s student-faculty ratio of 15:1 means that you’ll develop close relationships with your professors.

“Teachers, mentors, friends”—that’s the way Florida Southern students describe their faculty. Our accomplished scholars are dedicated to helping you thrive.

While faculty members are authors, artists, and researchers, immersed in scholarly and creative projects, they are teachers first and foremost, committed to making stimulating and engaging opportunities available to you—work closely with you both in and out of the classroom.
