Engaging, dynamic faculty members are the heart of Alvernia University. Our professors are accomplished scholars, experts in their fields, and supportive mentors who are committed foremost to their students’ success. More than two-thirds of them hold the highest degree available in their field. Outside of the classroom many regularly publish books and articles, present scholarly works at national and international conferences, and serve as field experts to the mass media — through newspaper, broadcast, and online outlets. It's no wonder that our students appreciate small class sizes (14:1 student to faculty ratio), personal attention, and breadth of academic programs offered — relevant in today's world.
