The faculty at St. Ambrose are champions of those who aspire to greater things and provide the inspiration, understanding and professional experience to make greater things possible.
Most full-time faculty have earned doctoral degrees, and just as many have real world experiences to bring to the classroom. Adjunct faculty are carefully selected based on their work experiences, enhancing the real-world perspectives in the classroom.
This blend of full-time and adjunct faculty creates a valuable synergism of theoretical and practical perspectives. While the focus is on student learning, having faculty members who are current and productive in their fields keeps everyone on the leading edge of learning.
