Faculty - Scholarly, Teaching
Bryant University-BITZH’s focus is on the learning experience and learning outcomes, and we take great pride in the quality of our dedicated faculty. Professors make a special effort to develop innovative pedagogies that turn the classroom into a forum for the presentation and exchange of ideas.

Our vibrant student life programs further extend the learning environment.

Such diverse scholarly activities enable the faculty to stay current in and contribute to their fields of knowledge.
