Faculty

IWU's Social Studies faculty members come from a broad spectrum of disciplines within the social sciences. While some instructors will define their discipline as a social science, others as a behavioral science, and still others as part of the humanities, they all share a common commitment to studying human beings and the human condition, both socially and individually.

All of our faculty members are highly qualified and hold advanced degrees in their respective disciplines. They are fully committed to academic excellence, student learning, and Christian service. Through teaching and mentoring, they endeavor to challenge students to examine, analyze, and understand God's world, especially those created in his image.
