At the heart of Scripps’ intellectual community is a faculty of distinguished teachers who are accomplished scholars, researchers, and leaders in their fields, as well as accessible and committed to student success. They produce internationally recognized research, publications, and artworks, while winning grants from prestigious organizations such as the National Science Foundation, the Fulbright Program, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Scripps’ curriculum is built on the expectation of close faculty-student interaction, and faculty engage deeply in mentoring, advising, and providing personalized instruction to students. Scripps’ low student /faculty ratio of 10:1, and the collaborative nature of the college, enable this personal experience.

Of Scripps’ 121 faculty members, nearly 75 percent are full time, 97 percent possess a PhD or appropriate terminal degree, 59 percent are women, and more than 18 percent are from traditionally underrepresented groups.
