MCLA's primary focus for faculty is on teaching. But the 83 full-time faculty members who teach there are also publishing books and articles, conducting research, and heading unique, groundbreaking projects that combine academic disciplines.

In true liberal arts tradition, this academic work helps MCLA faculty members contribute to larger bodies of research, collaborate with other institutions, explore new ideas, and deepen their expertise. It also makes its way into the classroom, giving students opportunities to serve internships, co-author publications, and conduct experiments.
