    Meet Our Faculty

    Compared to a brick and mortar, Brandman* professors are more open and I was able to learn better from them. The online community is what kept me going. I think this is the first time in my life where I can say I am proud of myself. 
    Leonard W. | MA in Special Education, Behavior Analysis
    *Brandman University is now UMass Global
    My academic advisor was a great support system. He was my advisor throughout my program and he took the time to learn about me personally so we could make the best schedule to accommodate my life.
    Steve L. | MAE, Teaching
    Gordon Winn
    The fact that Brandman University* was a not-for-profit school, really sealed the deal for me. I wanted to be able to attend a college, where I knew that my money, my tuition, was being used for the school and not being paid to the shareholders.
    Gordon W. | BA, Organizational Leadership
