Texas Nature Project faculty members are all professional educators committed to the intellectual, emotional, psychological, social, and spiritual growth of students. Students are challenged to work together with faculty to create the ideal community living experience.
The faculty director, a generalist in Philosophy with a specialty in environmental ethics, is responsible for maintaining the integrity of the programming elements to meet the goals of the curriculum. The director has taught higher education for over 15 years, has extensive experience in service learning, and has successfully implemented integrated curricula. The director lives on site and participates in the learning community 24 hours a day. Instruction is supplemented and extended through participation in Texas Nature Project’s Board membership, with leaders within the surrounding community, and with visiting faculty from other institutions.
