Oxy's faculty come from all over the map, both geographically and intellectually.
Our professors come to Oxy with a collective body of work that's incredibly diverse, on topics from food justice to the boundaries between orthodoxy and heresy to the fourth state of matter. What they get from Oxy is an environment where great research informs great teaching, the stimulation of living in one of the world's most exciting cities, and access to some of the country's most talented and thoughtful undergraduates.
Our 10:1 student/faculty ratio means that students get to know professors very well during their time here, in many cases working alongside Oxy professors on research and creative performance. Faculty members serve as academic advisors, career mentors, and lunch companions. The close relationship between Oxy's faculty and students does a lot of good on both sides of the equation.
