Eureka College faculty play a pivotal role in working toward the success of each and every EC student. The College has an average class size of fifteen students and a student-faculty ratio of 12:1. Many faculty have earned national and international recognition in their areas of scholarship, such as: social responses to alcoholism, the history of slavery; recognition in lepidoptery, philosophy, Native American literature; and individually recognized Fulbright Scholarship recipients.
Most full-time faculty also serve as academic advisors. Why? Because they view advising as a form of teaching. They bring to this task the same level of dedication and diligence they bring to their classroom work. Approximately one-quarter of all instructors also pursue opportunities to teach outside their fields of study in interdisciplinary courses such as Freshman and Senior, Honors Seminars, as well as Western Civilization and Culture courses.
