Distinguished Faculty

  • Mentors, Guides, Wise Friends

    At IUP, you’ll know your professors not only by the subjects they teach—you’ll know them by their names and their faces, their personalities, and the intellectual areas they are most passionate about.

    At IUP, you’ll be working side by side, even arm in arm at times, as IUP’s accomplished faculty members mentor, support, and encourage you. Collaboration is at the heart of the faculty/graduate student relationship.

    At IUP, you’ll have the opportunity to take your ideas and explore them, all the while receiving support from faculty members who care.

    “Graduate education at IUP is based on one-on-one relationships between students and faculty. Our master’s and doctoral programs lead to a network of professional relationships across the U.S. and around the world. It’s a great experience.”

    —Dr. Ben Rafoth, Graduate Studies in Composition and TESOL
