Meet our Faculty and Staff

As a student in Hillyer, you will build close relationships with our faculty, who are nationally and internationally recognized for their publications and research. They teach full-time, are experts in their field of study, and love to teach. Hillyer does not use teaching assistants or graduate assistants.

Our faculty are heavily involved in academic advising. You will be paired with a faculty advisor based on your major or interest. During your first semester, you will take a least one class with your advisor, giving him or her the chance to understand your academic abilities, challenges, and aspirations. Your advisor will also help you register and track your progress toward completing your degree requirements.
