Distinguished Faculty

Our professors stand out nationally for their dedication to teaching, distinguished scholarly work and positive influence on students’ lives.

In fact, teaching only scratches the surface in describing what they do. They engage, challenge, guide and collaborate with students, both in and out of the classroom — creating relationships that continue long after graduation.

And they’re among the best at it — 11 of the 27 Oregon Professors of the Year are from Willamette’s undergraduate program, a record unmatched by any school on the West Coast.

Two of our Arts & Sciences faculty have also received the Medical Research Foundation Mentor Award; biology professor Gary Tallman (2011), and exercise and health science professor Peter Harmer (2016).

Our graduate faculty are equally distinguished — the Aspen Institute recognized the achievements of faculty at Atkinson Graduate School of Management, and the College of Law’s faculty include some of the country’s most respected legal scholars as well as talented lawyers and jurists.
