Our Faculty

In our quest to educate and form persons for others, Saint Louis University’s College of Arts and Sciences has gathered a world-class faculty of teacher-scholars who are dedicated to excellence in undergraduate and graduate education.

Each is devoted to outstanding teaching, cutting-edge research and scholarship, inspired artistic expression and faithful service to SLU's campus and community.

Embracing the great and wondrous diversity that makes up the human race and the unique gifts and talents of every individual, this collection of curious seekers and learners works together to unpack the mysteries and answer the endless array of questions posed by the physical, social and spiritual worlds we each inhabit.

We always do this with an eye toward justice, peace, beauty and the common good of the whole human family and the created world we share.

You can find more information on our faculty members on the pages devoted to their disciplines.
