Core Faculty

Clark Honors College core faculty members design the honors college curriculum, and teach, advise and mentor students. Core faculty are not only award-winning teachers, but also active researchers in their fields. Learn more about their fields of study, and opportunities they have for students to get involved, on their profile pages.

When asked what one piece of advice they would give to an incoming student, our graduating seniors overwhelmingly responded—"Go To Office Hours!"

Faculty host office hours every week, and their schedules are listed alongside their profiles, below. Most faculty are willing to set an individual appointment with you if you cannot come during the posted times.
