Faculty Highlights

Research with Heart

For some, research is an exercise in theory. For others, like Dr. Kirsten Madsen, it is a calling — and a powerful way to create real change in real people and their communities.

Our Faculty

Here, you learn from faculty members who both love to teach and are actively engaged in research on communication, digital learning, academic pathways, computer-assisted language learning, neurolinguistic learning, psychology, creativity and much more.
