Villanova is committed to excellence in teaching, and we appreciate that discovering and disseminating knowledge go hand in hand. This model of the educator as a teacher-scholar guides my work as Interim Associate Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning.

My office is here to support faculty so they have the resources necessary to be innovative and challenging instructors, and to make sure our students receive an outstanding educational experience worthy of a community of learners.
