Elon faculty members are teacher-scholar-mentors who place teaching at the forefront of what they do and who also engage in scholarly productivity and student mentoring. The teaching norm is five or six courses a year, depending on course reassignments. Since Elon has a fall term, January winter term and spring term, this could be a 2-1-2 or a 2-1-3.
