Why I Teach at SPU

Regina Schlee, Professor of Marketing

"I love teaching students at Seattle Pacific University because of the special bond that is created between students and professors. I enjoy getting to know my students, explaining to them the contribution of the discipline of marketing to business and society, and discussing ethical issues that arise from the practice of marketing."
