Why I Teach at SPU

Dr. Randy Beavers, Associate Professor of Finance

"I teach at SPU to bestow not only financial skills but also a sense of community. Given our small class sizes, I get the opportunity to look at a student’s eyes to see if he or she has really had that aha moment. Building those personal relationships, just as Christ provides that same chance for all of us, makes me feel at home."
