Faculty Voices

Like the students they teach, Webster University faculty members are multidimensional. They cannot not be defined strictly by academic interests. While they bring impressive academic excellence and expertise into the classroom, the way they connect with students and impact their learning experience goes beyond that.

The Voices series captures a peek into some of these faculty members’ unique personalities, teaching style and research interests – inside and outside the classroom.
