As Director of Assessment, I service the University as the chair of the program review committee and help the institution demonstrate all the ways Bushnell University fulfills its calling as an institution of Christian higher education, which includes its core themes and mission. I assist a variety of academic and administrative departments with mission alignment, effectiveness, and compliance of academic and accreditation standards for the University’s regional accreditation by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). I currently also assist the Associate Vice President with a variety of assessment activities and accreditation requirements for professional programs.

As Assistant Professor of Humanities, I teach in a variety of history, bible, theology and ethics classes primarily for the school of Professional Studies. Included in this role is the program faculty oversight for the Interdisciplinary Studies (IDS) program. If you are seeking information about finishing your degree at Bushnell University, please feel free to contact me. I would enjoy working with you and setting up an educational program that meets your specific needs.
