Faculty & Staff

Our faculty aim not only to help students master new languages, but new cultures. LCIT has faculty from around the world, including Spain, Korea, Uruguay, Argentina, Greece, Germany, Guatemala, China, and France. Our graduate assistants hail from China, France, Japan, Honduras, Switzerland and Germany, among others. Nearly all our professors and lecturers have traveled abroad extensively and have lived or taught abroad in order to immerse themselves in a country's cultural norms. So they bring a multitude of diverse cultural perspectives to the table, together with their knowledge of the languages they teach. For more on our faculty see our "Faculty Stories" page.

Our front office staff, Tequila Young and Chair Dr. Jennifer Smith, are happy to provide you with any assistance we can. Visit the main office in Faner 2166, call 618-536-5571, or email us. If we can't answer your question, we'll direct you to someone in the department or elsewhere on campus who can answer it.
