Dr. Germain Badang

Assistant Professor of Languages

Educated in Cameroon, a country in central West Africa, Spain, and in the United States, Dr. Badang comes to Concord University with extensive knowledge of several languages, a past steeped in multicultural experiences, and dedication to teaching. His goal is to use his knowledge to “challenge [his students] so that they can discover in themselves what they never thought they were able to do.” Dr. Badang says he strives for excellence in every student and cultivates a sense of community in his classroom, “where students express their solidarity and support each other’s efforts.” Currently, Dr. Badang is working with his students to create a Language Club on campus.

Dr. Michael Bean

Assistant Professor of Education and Interim Assistant Provost

Dr. Bean is excited to be part of Concord’s Education Department, working with students he describes as respectful and ready to learn. One lesson Dr. Bean and our other faculty members teach Concord students is the reality of the profession. Through a variety of placements and teaching opportunities, or “in the fire” opportunities as Dr. Bean describes them, our students are prepared to enter the field.

“I have a passion for education. I see how that can open doors and create opportunities.”

Shawn Hatcher

Princeton, W.Va.

Shawn is a second generation Mountain Lion, but that is only one detail that finalized his decision to choose CU after graduating from Pikeview High School in 2017. The university also had the program of study he wanted, and its location meant Shawn could commute to save money. He is a Business Administration major with concentrations in management and finance. When Shawn isn’t in class, you’ll find him working in the business office as a work-study in the Accounts Payable office. Shawn says the real life experiences that professors share and the work experience he has received at Concord has prepared him for the kind of job he wants when he graduates, one similar to the job he currently does at CU. Education aside, Shawn says his favorite part about Concord is the people. “It felt like home from the time I stepped on the campus in 2017,” Shawn says. “Most of everyone is relaxed and will help out if you are in need.”
