Unlike the traditional higher education institutions in the United States where administrators outnumber faculty, at GCAS-RII our founding administrators work in the classroom as professors and are expected to continually contribute to publishing the highest level of research findings. By breaking down and challenging the wall between administration and faculty within the academy we at GCAS-RII continue to fulfill our mission of creating a new and needed space.
