Endicott College Faculty
Professional, Experienced, and There for Students
Endicott is proud to have a faculty known for their teaching excellence, their experience in the working world, and their genuine care and concern for students' well-being and success. The College takes pride in its commitment to instruction and its attentiveness to the individual needs of students.
The size of the Endicott College student body allows the ratio of faculty to students to be just one to sixteen. Instructors get to know their students well and can advise them on a frequent basis, both in regard to classwork and career goals. Each instructor has posted conference hours and most serve as academic advisors.
