A look at the new faces of learning at Missouri S&T

Missouri S&T’s faculty members are passionate about teaching. They are highly credentialed. They came to S&T for many different — although quite specific — reasons, and now that they’re here, they are productive in ways that extend beyond the classroom and the lab.

From advising the Rock Climbing Club — and turning physical feats on the rock face into mental challenges in the classroom — to taking a group of college students throughout the Western Hemisphere to help solve the clean-water crisis in developing countries, these experiences help our faculty build bonds with their students that form the foundation of student success.

Whether they came from a small Midwestern college or a top-tier research university, our faculty find S&T’s diversity, STEM focus and unique student body a real draw. Some were also lured by research facilities and small class sizes that are unavailable at peer institutions.

Missouri S&T is known for graduating tomorrow’s problem‑solvers, tomorrow’s leaders. That’s thanks in no small part to the educators who have imparted their wisdom, whether through research, teaching or mentorship.

Read on and meet a few of the new faces of learning at S&T.
