Our Faculty

Our faculty—an immense source of pride for Endicott.

If you were to choose to attend a large university, you would probably expect to sit anonymously in a big lecture hall in many of your courses. But in choosing Endicott College, you're opting for a different kind of educational experience - one with a more collaborative, close-knit learning community.

Ultimately, Endicott College is about people. Our students and faculty are well-rounded individuals who share a commitment to hard work and a passion for discovery. Our faculty are not only outstanding educators; they're also distinguished practitioners in their respective fields, and they consistently demonstrate genuine care and concern for our students' well-being and success. That's the kind of people we seek, and our size helps foster close student-instructor interaction. With a faculty-to-student ratio of 1:13, your instructors get to know you well and are in a position to advise and guide you on a consistent basis.

Your college education is a huge investment in your future. Shouldn't you expect your teachers to play an active role in your journey?
