Meet Our Faculty

One of the reasons I moved to Clark was to do this kind of teaching. At large universities, where you’re teaching large classes, you don’t get to bring your research into your teaching, or take your teaching out into the field as easily.

At Clark, there are three NMR spectrometers, similar to what you would find at a much larger university. They’re readily available for us to conduct our research. And that’s invaluable.

Clark is small enough that students in the social sciences can acquaint themselves with many different disciplines. Clark is also a research university, which gives students the opportunity to become involved in specialized research.
