Lake Forest College faculty are teachers and mentors who are singularly focused on their students’ success. As experts in their field, faculty regularly publish books and articles and conduct research with students. And they use Chicago as a living classroom.
With the first week of online learning under their belts, faculty transitioned to a new instructional environment and bridged the physical divide with students, maintaining the personal connection they established before the COVID-19 pandemic struck the US.
Ninety-eight percent of full-time faculty hold a PhD or terminal degree from places like Northwestern, Princeton, University of Pennsylvania, MIT, Harvard, University of Michigan, and University of Chicago.
Many have been awarded grants and fellowships and recognized for their research and teaching by prestigious organizations such as the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Andrew Mellon Foundation.
They are regularly contacted for expert comment in media such as the The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, National Public Radio, and others.
