Meet the Central College Faculty

Like the students they teach, Central College's faculty members are active. They are accomplished scholars. They conduct important research, publish articles in leading academic journals, present at conferences and author books. But they are at Central because their first love—and their priority—is providing world-class undergraduate instruction for the students they serve, while helping them discover and develop their greatest potential.
