Our faculty are experienced and dedicated to helping our students succeed. Many of our faculty are published writers and accomplished researchers; and many have several years of experience in the workplace. A good deal of our classes leverage our connections with the Boise State campus and local area community to help our students network, land internships, learn, and make a positive difference through a combination of rhetorical awareness, writing savvy, and hands-on, real-world application.
