Meet Our Faculty & Staff
Rowland Hall faculty members are united in their efforts to teach the content, culture, and character that today’s students will need to succeed in college and the workplace. In addition to their commitments as teachers, advisors, mentors, and coaches, our faculty members take time to keep current on the latest learning research, teaching techniques, curriculum development, and technological trends. Rowland Hall’s financial support for professional development of both faculty and staff is simply unparalleled among its peer Utah schools.
Our employees' backgrounds and interests vary widely. Many are transplants to Utah who were educated in colleges and universities nationally, and even internationally. Our students’ horizons are broadened when these multifaceted role models share lessons learned from their personal pursuits.
Above all, Rowland Hall students perceive faculty and staff as creating a caring, well-structured learning environment in which academic risk is encouraged and expectations are high, clear, and challenging.
