THE FACULTY

Instructors for the Missouri Scholars Academy form a highly select group. They have been recruited from among the very best teachers in Missouri's high schools, colleges and universities. A favorable evaluation of an instructor's written application results in a face-to-face interview with the candidate by the co-directors of the program and members of the Academy core planning committee. Among the characteristics sought in faculty members are knowledge of the subject matter, effectiveness in communication, range of intellectual and cultural interests, evidence of personal giftedness, evidence of professional involvement, experience and interest in working with gifted students, evidence of creativity in one's teaching, tolerance for ambiguity, and organizational skills. The faculty and members of the administrative staff are exemplary in their demonstration of these qualities.

THE RESIDENCE HALL AND PROGRAM STAFF

The program coordinator, community service and technology staff, the coordinator of residential life, the resident assistants, and the special staff members are chosen with extreme care. They have been selected for their abilities to communicate with students, to provide an on-going living/learning environment, to enforce rules and regulations with compassion and common sense, to involve all students in community living, to supervise a variety of recreational activities and generally to serve as resource personnel.
