About LTSP Faculty

LTSP’s full-time faculty, plus adjunct faculty, provide a complete academic program with classes available weekdays, evenings, and Saturdays. Three are women, one Latino, and two African American, and they come from a number of traditions in addition to Lutheran. Three were born outside of the United States, coming from India and New Zealand. Ten faculty reside on campus. LTSP’s faculty and community are supported by our skilled, dedicated staff.
