Terra State loves our faculty!

Our faculty is what sets us apart from other colleges. They are caring, knowledgeable, and experienced in their fields. They are regionally and nationally recognized leaders in their fields and pride themselves on providing high-quality educational experiences.

Terra State faculty also serve on numerous national and state committees, boards and professional associations along with being committed to our students. They develop meaningful, professional relationships with their students and engage students in real world learning, both in and out of the classroom.

What do students say about faculty?

Out of the other schools I have attended, the instructors at Terra State were the most helpful and wanted to see their students succeed. When a student doesn’t understand something, they do what they can to make sure the information is understood."
