Dr. Michael Bean
Assistant Professor of Education
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.”
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. Scott Inghram '03
MSW Program Director and Associate Professor
“Students are the best part of my job and I hope that I am a positive part of their learning experience at the Campus Beautiful.”
Dr. Inghram says working for the Social Work department at Concord allows him to impart skills and knowledge in order to better serve our global community while addressing specific needs and issues. He believes our students have the opportunity to not only build the knowledge base they need, but to engage in “doing” in order to put their newly formed knowledge into practice. Dr. Inghram and the Social Work faculty are continuously researching and serving on boards and committees to make sure the program at CU prepares our students to take on the many issues challenging our state and local communities.
