Professor Mandy Adams joined the Valparaiso University faculty in the fall of 2011 when she began teaching in the Valpo Core program. Along with Core, she has taught the GS-100 course (Strategies for Academic Success). She received both her BA in English (2001) and MALS in English (2011) degrees from Valpo. Having chosen Valpo as both her place of study and employment, she fondly refers to our university as home.
Professor Adams, nominated for the CELT Excellence in Teaching Award in 2018 and the VUAA Distinguished Teaching Award in 2013, understands the value in cultivating personal connections with her students. These connections pave the way to the Valpo experience, the individual pursuit of academic excellence that results in each student referring to Valpo as home.
