Why do I enjoy teaching at SBU?

As a student I attended a school very similar to SBU. I enjoy teaching at SBU because I know that students that choose to come here want to learn in a Christ-centered environment. This gives the Liberal Arts a chance to foster and grow the curiosity of our students. With the emphasis on international missions our students get to stretch themselves both culturally and spiritually and see what the world could be.
