Faculty

Faculty

Collectively, the SOAR faculty is a highly distinguished group of educators.  Many are retired academics, most having taught at Wayne State or other local colleges and universities. A number are still active faculty members at their respective institutions. Other faculty members include experienced professionals from every field who are willing to share their knowledge and experience with the society's membership. All contribute their services as volunteers.
