Faculty Who Are Experts in the Classroom—and in their Field
At Endicott College, faculty engage with students in research, partner in projects that transcend our community, and quickly assume the role as mentors. Above that, our faculty are actively engaged in their respective fields. That means, our students are not only instructed by professors who teach, but also by scholars and professionals across disciplines who share from experience.
Over the course of the last year, our faculty have been busy. Here is a list of books published from May 2018 to May 2019 and the faculty who authored them.

Celli’s book, Educating the Experienced: Challenges and Best Practices in Adult Learning, was co-authored by Adjunct Professor, Dr. Nicholas D. Young, and Melissa Mumbry. The book addresses how adult learners bring with them a unique set of skills and how educators can meet their needs.
