Faculty

Meet our mathematics faculty

Our faculty of five full-time professors and supporting contract teachers is large enough to offer experience in a diverse range of areas, but small enough to allow students to get to know each faculty member. We strive to offer a quality program for our majors, including a wide range of class options, participation in national mathematics competition, and small class sizes.
