Faculty in the Spotlight

Dr. Anderson Starling, an associate professor of political science, knows that the subject he teaches is often a source of discomfort and dissension, but he encourages his students to put aside their political predispositions in order to understand what factors determine their and other people's beliefs.

Starling says he makes it a point to not discuss his personal political opinions in his classes in order to ensure his students trust him and the materials he teaches.

Ultimately, his goal as an educator is to see his students succeed. Every graduation, Starling can be found sitting among his fellow faculty members cheering on every student he has taught, thankful he had the chance to influence their lives.
