At a liberal arts college, teaching is a professor’s primary domain. These efforts are informed by scholarly engagement through peer-review and conference presentations. Teaching and research, in turn, buoy a professor’s service work, manifest in the programmatic and curricular decisions that create enriching opportunities for students and colleagues across campus.
