Rhodes’ strength as a distinguished college of the liberal arts and sciences is dependent on an exceptionally able student body and a faculty of effective teachers and committed scholars. College planning, including curriculum and academic facilities, is done with the objective of making it possible for students and faculty to create an imaginative and challenging learning experience.

Rhodes recruits faculty members who demonstrate excellent teaching and who show promise of continued and significant scholarly activity. The College also depends on the Faculty to provide leadership not only in academic development for the College but also in the overall governance of the institution. In the section of this bulletin titled “The Educational Program”, the members of each academic department are named with year of appointment, area specialties, and additional educational background information.

The College is justifiably proud of the accomplishments of its Faculty. In particular, the Clarence Day Award for Outstanding Teaching, the Clarence Day Award for Research and Creative Activity, and the Jameson M. Jones Outstanding Faculty Service Award are given to those individuals judged as deserving of special recognition. Award winners have been as follows:
