Through Roanoke’s faculty of approximately 135 full-time members, the student can make fruitful contact with a whole new world of learning and educational experiences.  Over 90 percent of our faculty hold the earned doctorate or the highest degree in their area of expertise.  Faculty members are active scholars who regularly publish and consult in their academic specialties.

Close relationships between the faculty and students are possible.  An advisor is assigned to newly enrolled freshmen or undeclared transfer students during the summer pre-registration process.  Students with a declared major are assigned to faculty in their department.
