Our Core Faculty

Members of our Iliff faculty, one–third of whom are people of color, represent a wide variety of denominations and faiths, including American Baptist, Buddhist, Catholic, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Episcopal, Jewish, Lutheran (ELCA), Presbyterian Church (USA), United Church of Christ and United Methodist. Each of our Iliff faculty has an extraordinary commitment to teaching and scholarship that ensures an enriching and rewarding learning environment, while their dedication to developing caring, collegial relationships nurtures and challenges each student in ways textbooks and lectures cannot.
