Duquesne's professors help students reach their full potential in more ways than one. The personal relationships formed between professors and students extend well beyond the classroom, and because of this special bond students flourish-- sometimes in unexpected ways. Dr. Brian Nagle, Associate Professor of Accounting, sees first-hand the transformation students undergo, "It has been said that adversity reveals character. One of the more rewarding aspects of teaching at Duquesne is helping students to gain the confidence needed to face the unexpected challenges of college life and seeing them achieve success." A sense of community takes on many forms at Duquesne—integral to student life is the personal attention given to each student by a caring faculty who are invested in the totality of what it means for a student to achieve their full potential-- in work, in life and beyond.
