Accomplished professionals and researchers don't necessarily make the best educators. Except at Claflin, where our mission necessitates both.
The faculty at Claflin University are highly qualified scholars in their respective disciplines with extensive teaching and research experience. We take enormous pride in the caliber of talented and caring educators who are committed to training our students to become visionary leaders in an ever-changing, highly competitive global society.
We may be a small school among many larger, bigger-name players, but our commitment to scholarship speaks for itself. Since 1996, four Claflin faculty members have been named Governor's Professors of the Year in the state of South Carolina.
Meet Our Faculty
The Faculty-Student Partnership in Research
Because our faculty remain abreast of cutting-edge developments in their fields, they pass along that knowledge to their students. Claflin is unique in our ability to encourage student research participation. In fact, from the day you first walk on campus as a first-year student, you will be presented with rare opportunities to work closely with faculty members on important research and professional projects. With that kind of training, is it any surprise that our graduates go on to attend some of the nation's top graduate schools and thrive in their chosen professional fields?
