Commencement

Exceptional faculty seek out Suffolk for its reputation, its committed student body, and its unsurpassed location in the heart of the world’s foremost intellectual community, Boston. They are thought leaders who conduct high-level research, publish books and articles, and advise multinational corporations and governments. But they’re never too busy for their students.

A Teacher-Scholar Model

Suffolk’s curriculum is based around research and experiential learning. Professors are crucial guides in this process. They’ll work with you to design a program of study that complements your academic and professional goals.

Our professors are committed to honing their expertise and finding new ways to connect with students. Suffolk’s Center for Teaching Excellence sponsors events, workshops, and research opportunities that help faculty sharpen the skills that make Suffolk stand apart.
