Why I Teach at SPU

Kenman Wong, Professor of Business Ethics

"I enjoy teaching here because SPU is a unique place with a compelling mission. I find it tremendously rewarding to be part of a university that values close student-faculty relationships, service to society, character formation, and the liberal arts. SPU’s location within the urban core of a world class city also offers numerous internships, career, and cultural opportunities for students. Add it all up and it’s a combination that’s pretty tough to beat!"
