Hiram College

Meet Our Faculty

“The Emerging Scholars program at Hiram College is really about providing students with access to the support, resources and structure needed to make a successful transition from high school to college. When Emerging Scholars take advantage of these opportunities and engage with faculty and staff at Hiram, they are well on their way to succeeding at Hiram.”

~Dr. Roxanne Sorrick, Ed.D., Professor of Education and Head of Teacher Education

“We are all smart–gifted–in one or more ways–and we all have different ways of learning about our world. [Teaching in] The Emerging Scholars program gives me a chance to discover–not only where the student needs help–but where she excels–and the opportunity to explore multiple ways of presenting difficult ideas and skills.”

~Dr. Elizabeth Bauman, Ph.D., Associate Professor and Chair, Theater Arts Program

“Working with Emerging Scholars is perhaps one of the more rewarding experiences I have had in my teaching careers. These students bring broad thinking and varied experiences to Hiram, and it’s both a challenge and a joy to help them translate those experiences to the classroom, their programs of study, and their potential career and calling.”

~Dr. Jeffrey Swenson, Ph.D., Associate Professor of English and Director of Writing Across the Curriculum
