Meet Our Faculty & Staff

As the Dean of Saint Louis University’s Parks College of Engineering, Aviation and Technology, I have the pleasure and privilege of leading this outstanding organization at a transformational time during its nearly ninety-year history.  We are growing and adapting to prepare engineers and aviators to address the changing needs of society.

At Parks, we are motivated by our Jesuit, Catholic mission – to form technically proficient and socially responsible innovators and leaders in engineering and aviation. Our students don’t just learn through lectures. They learn through lab courses, by using the latest equipment and tools to manufacture parts, by building products and by collaborating with faculty on research projects.

This year, we welcome our largest student body in college history – more than 900 students. Parks College has always been, and will always remain, student-focused. We are here to teach and help develop tomorrow’s leaders. Our faculty hold funding from NSF, NIH, Siemens, KEEN, MODOT and IDOT, just to name a few – and they all involve students in their research. We’ve built satellites, race cars and even concrete canoes. Our students have been named Grand Challenge Scholars and University Innovation Fellows. We’ve signed pipeline partnerships with four different airlines and a diversity initiative for engineering colleges. Clearly, we are doing extraordinary work and being recognized for it.

I consider myself very lucky to work with such dedicated people who want to make a difference in the world and live our Jesuit mission. As we continue to grow and evolve, I assure you that Parks College will remain true to its founding principles. I hope you will continue to follow our progress and support our outstanding students, staff, and faculty.
