Gehring Academy Faculty

Faculty Position Description and Expectations

The Gehring Academy Faculty Members are the valued and respected core of the Donald D. Gehring Academy. Academy participants consistently cite the quality and approachability of our Faculty Members as a primary reason they attend the Academy and are satisfied with their experience. Each year, the Academy planning team hosts an open application process inviting our members to serve in this elite role and selects respected student conduct and legal professionals to represent the best of our field and Association. The work we do at the Academy shapes the future skill-base, quality, and direction of student conduct. We appreciate their contributions made on behalf of the Association, the students, and campus communities impacted by our work.
