Dean of the Faculty

Message from the Dean

At the heart of Harvey Mudd’s vibrant intellectual community is an extraordinary body of teacher-scholars. Deeply committed to the College mission, HMC faculty members unite their diverse talents to educate students broadly in science, engineering and mathematics and in the humanities, social sciences and the arts. We are particularly proud of our extensive opportunities for student research, our nationally recognized Clinic Program and our dedication to situating STEM education in a liberal arts context.

Teaching is of the utmost importance at Harvey Mudd, and our faculty members are leaders in the development of innovative classroom practices and learning technologies. At the same time, our faculty members are productive and engaged scholars whose research and art, innovations and inventions, push the boundaries of their disciplines. HMC faculty model the life of the mind, engage students in professional practice and inspire creative problem solving.
