Faculty



We are SC Faculty

We are the teachers and researchers. We share knowledge and shape young minds and hope that we might impart some wisdom along the way. We are the defenders of academic freedom. We believe in the power of research to advance the academy and improve the world around us. We are the foundation of the university’s core mission: education. We are SC.
