Welcome New Faculty

New Faculty

John Carroll is proud to announce 18 newly
appointed faculty joining us this fall.

John Carroll University launches the 2017-18 academic year with 18 newly appointed faculty. The hiring of new professors and lecturers represents the University’s enhanced commitment to undergraduate teaching in Accountancy, Communications, Education, Marketing, Exercise Science, Sports Studies, and Supply Chain, as well as the Pre-Health Professions program. There is also a renewed focus on professionals seeking an MBA or other advanced degrees in areas such as Clinical Mental Health Counseling.

“We are intentionally focusing on bolstering the ranks of our faculty as part of our commitment to consistently provide an exceptional academic experience for our students, ” says Dr. Jeanne Colleran, interim president of John Carroll University. “Preparing students to pursue a successful life begins with the people whose mission it is to teach and empower.”

While appointments were made across a variety of disciplines, many were made to support areas of distinction within the University:

  • The Tim Russert Department of Communications and Theatre hired three new faculty. The department offers three tracks of study: Communication Studies, Digital Media, and Integrated Marketing Communication. The department is well-known for its JCU/NBC “Meet the Press” Fellowship.
  • The John M. and Mary Jo Boler School of Business hired two new faculty in the Department of Accountancy and five in the Department of Management, Marketing & Logistics. Bloomberg Businessweek’s 2016 “Best Undergraduate Business Schools” Employer Survey ranked the Boler School #1 in the nation on how well undergraduate programs prepare students for careers at their companies.
  • The Mike Cleary Program in Sports Studies hired two new faculty. The program focuses on planning, implementation and leadership across a wide diversity of athletic-related careers in college and professional sports management, coaching, recreation, and administration. John Carroll alumni provide a national network of administrators and coaches throughout the NFL, MLB, and NCAA who have opened doors for student internships and jobs.
