"Teachers, mentors, friends"—that's the way generations of Kenyon students sum up the role that their professors have played in their lives. The faculty is Kenyon's greatest strength: nearly 200 accomplished scholars whose top priority is to help students thrive.
Professors work closely with students, in and out of the classroom and lab. Kenyon's student-faculty ratio of 10:1 means that close contact is inevitable. Teaching is the top priority here. Our faculty members are authors, artists, and researchers, immersed in scholarly and creative projects. But they are classroom teachers first and foremost, committed to making stimulating opportunities available to students.
