Learning extends beyond the classroom
Eureka College faculty play a pivotal role in working toward the success of each and every ec student. The college has an average class size of fifteen students and a student-faculty ratio of 13:1. Many faculty have earned national and international recognition in their areas of scholarship, such as: social responses to alcoholism, the history of slavery; recognition in lepidoptery, philosophy, Native American literature; and individually recognized Fulbright Scholarship recipients.
Most full-time faculty also serve as academic advisors. Why? Because they view advising as a form of teaching. They bring to this task the same level of dedication and diligence they bring to their classroom work. Approximately one-quarter of all instructors also pursue opportunities to teach outside their fields of study in interdisciplinary courses such as freshman and senior, honors seminars.
