Program Directors and Program Chairs

Our faculty members do more than teach their specialties, they work in their specialties. We select instructors whose day-to-day duties ensure they are knowledgeable and up-to-date on the most current theories, practices and technologies of their field – and who also possess a gift to teach that information to students.
