Nate joined GGU in 2009, and entered the role as Dean from his previous position as Associate Professor. In his faculty role, he was heavily involved in the reconstruction of GGU's Undergraduate degrees in order to ensure that our graduates are well prepared to meet the challenges of today's world. Nate's teaching focuses on ethics, critical thinking and core areas of philosophy and psychology. He has published research on hospice/palliative care, suffering, and bereavement.
As Dean, Nate's vision for Undergraduate Programs is to provide skills, promote employability, enable adaptability, and encourage self-esteem through comprehensive and on-going support for all of our students. He believes that GGU's undergrad degree programs should provide rich training in the areas of liberal arts and lifelong learning with an emphasis on practical business applications; it is important that students develop the capacity to think critically and creatively in both personal and professional settings.
