People

Classes in the Applied Behavioral Science Program are taught by both regular and adjunct faculty.
Regular faculty are fulltime employees of Wright State University's College of Liberal Arts. They hold doctoral level degrees from major institutions of higher learning, have significant expertise in their major area of academic concentration, and engage both in teaching and research. Chairs of thesis committees additionally have been evaluated and granted regular graduate faculty status by the Graduate School of Wright State University.

Adjunct faculty generally have advanced degrees, but may or may not hold doctorates. They are hired for particular courses due to their relevant areas of expertise and career experience.

Student evaluation of each class is mandated by the university and each regular faculty member's overall teaching performance is evaluated annually.
