The faculty members of the IWU Division of Behavioral Sciences are all professionals in their own areas; most practice their disciplines off campus a limited amount of time along with their teaching responsibilities. This allows them to stay current in their fields and in touch with the world they seek to serve. Some faculty members do private counseling; some are school counselors, social workers and researchers; and many are leaders in community "helping-relationship" agencies such as Crisis Pregnancy, Hands of Hope, prison ministries and grief counseling ministries. All of our Psychology and Addictions Counseling faculty are doctorally prepared, as are 75 percent of our other professors.

All of our professors integrate their faith in their disciplines.
