Meet the Faculty

GSEP's professors of education and psychology hold doctorates from the nations finest universities. They are accomplished professionals with large responsibilities in school districts, technology firms, private practices, corporate offices, hospitals, laboratories, and clinics. All GSEP faculty offer an important balance between theory and practice in a practitioner-based curriculum. Faculty take students to the intersection of theory and real-world application based on their knowledge, experience, and desire to prepare students to make a difference.

Professors who know the classroom inside...
GSEP professors don't need to teach; they want to teach. They are people who can inspire others; people who remember the impact good teachers had on them, and people who believe that sharing knowledge is a responsibility rather than a burden. GSEP professors are there when you need them - in the classroom, at work,  or even online. They often are the last ones to leave class, making sure every question is answered.

And Outside...
Often, the best way for a professor to help students is to take them beyond the classroom. GSEP programs rest firmly in the real worlds of practice and professional responsibility, with GSEP professors serving as mentors in those worlds.
