Faculty, Adjuncts and Staff

The multi-disciplinary expertise of both our full-time and part-time faculty extends beyond traditional foci to include related specialties such as urban public health, history, governance, design and media. This unique blend of knowledge informs work in both the classroom and on the ground in communities, neighborhoods and cities around the world. As an added benefit, our part-time faculty is made up of working professionals who are experts in their own right and are able to bring volumes of experience and capacity to the classes they teach.
