Meet Our Faculty

Our faculty members want great things for you – and you'll sense that from the moment you start at UDM. Nearly 90 percent of our faculty hold a Ph.D. or terminal degree, and our student-faculty ratio is 14:1. What does this mean to you? It means you'll be working closely with accomplished, dedicated professionals whose first priority is teaching.
