Spring Hill College Welcomes New Fall 2021 Faculty

Spring Hill College is pleased to welcome new faculty members to campus for the Fall 2021 semester. As part of the College’s focus to ensure students are prepared for success after graduation, these scholars join the College’s current distinguished faculty, and as the campus returns to face-to-face instruction. 

Lisa Hager, PhD, Interim Provost at Spring Hill College said, “We have a diverse group of faculty members who have excelled in their fields of study. We are fortunate to have the skills and expertise of these new faculty on campus as well. Our students will have opportunities to learn from those who are experts in their chosen fields.”

E. Joseph Lee, PhD, President of Spring Hill College said, “Expanding our curriculum to match current industry trends has been a game-changer. Now our students get real-world ready expertise right here on campus, while still learning our traditional Jesuit values and traditions. It is truly a win-win for both students and faculty.”
