Quantitative and qualitative assignments complement readings from the history of science and science fiction, focusing on how paradigms and worldviews frame our understandings of data, how science and society influence each other, and how data-based arguments can be communicated effectively to broad audiences.


Responsibilities include equipping students with the required skill set, facilitating classroom discussions, assessing student performance and preparing students to be successful leaders in their chosen profession.  Other main responsibilities include the following:

  • Provide a positive example to students by supporting the University’s Doctrinal Statement, Ethical Position Statement and Mission of Grand Canyon University.
