Rama ViswanathanBeloit College faculty are scholar-teachers who act as mentors to their students, include them in their lessons and research, and support their development within the classroom and outside it. Beloit professors guide, engage, interact, and ask tough questions, all while continuing to explore their own work as scholars, bringing students along for research opportunities and summertime projects. Of the roughly 105 full-time faculty at Beloit, 97 percent hold a Ph.D. or the highest degree in their field.

Professor Rob LaFleur, the 2011 winner of the James S. Underkofler Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching Award, says Beloit is a place that “channels intellectual passion” and continues to inspire and drive his scholarly pursuits.

“I have found, in short, in my colleagues and students, a place where the longing for meaning and introspection is not just talk,” he said.
