Meet Our Faculty
Georgia Gwinnett College recruits faculty who share our commitment to student success. Most of our 500+ faculty have earned doctorates or other terminal degrees. All of them have a passion for teaching.
As a student, you'll quickly experience the difference this makes. When they are not in class, our faculty are often tutoring, texting or talking with their students.
Below are some of the faculty who make GGC shine. They are not the only ones. In each of our schools - Business, Education, Liberal Arts, and Science & Technology - you'll find faculty ready to help you succeed.
Dr. Jessica Damián is an associate professor of English and the interim associate dean for the School of Liberal Arts. She joined Georgia Gwinnett College in 2007 as the founding faculty member of the English program.
Dr. Johnson received awards for his teaching, scholarship and service and is dedicated to the professional and personal development of students. He has also held positions with major businesses such as General Electric, PeopleSoft, IBM, Michelin North America and United Technologies Corporation.
Dr. Lewis is a social foundations scholar interested in the impact of power and privilege on educational practices and policies, as well as in the examination of the socio-cultural contexts of education. Her teaching philosophy is based on the belief that reflective practice, critical thinking skills and engagement in experiential education assist students in developing a desire to become life-long learners.
Dr. Dave Pursell joined the GGC faculty in 2007 from the University of Pennsylvania, where he was the executive director of Penn Chemistry. Pursell served as GGC’s associate dean for the School of Science and Technology from 2007 until 2010, when he returned to full-time faculty duties.
