At Virginia Commonwealth University professors possess knowledge and
experience that spans beyond lecture halls. Actively engaged in scholarship
and creative exploration, they serve as role models and mentors. They
learn as much as they lead.
Creating an atmosphere of high expectation and self-motivation,
the faculty at VCU encourages students to explore, to seek answers
beyond the limits of expectation. They invite self-discovery and
intellectual growth through healthy dialogue and shared experience.
They stay in touch with the global world, monitor trends and work
in the fields they teach, bringing those real world experiences
into the classroom. All of which helps them to inspire their students
and enrich their teaching.
Our professors understand that real education is a combination of knowing
and doing. It’s a process of discovery. It’s learning to think for
yourself. It’s introspection. It’s field experiences and research.
Our professors know that experience is the best teacher.
