“I have taught at several colleges including two Regent's universities, three community colleges, a for-profit college and another faith-based college but teaching at MNU is like "coming home". MNU is where I have had the most supportive and collegial working relationships of my career. I love teaching at MNU because of the sense of community faculty are able to establish with their students."

—Kim Humerickhouse
