- OUR FACULTY
EDMUND F. BLOEDOW
REV. DOUG HAYMAN
Our Faculty and Administration has always been comprised of devout Christians from a range of denominational backgrounds, including: Anglican, Baptist, Eastern & Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Methodist, Pentecostal, and Presbyterian.
Students are taught by senior Christian academics with many years of teaching and learning behind them and also by dedicated younger faculty.
Because Augustine College is a small, private, not-for-profit college that operates without government support, it operates on a shoe-string budget. As a result, our professors are not salaried academics building careers but teachers who teach because they love teaching, out of a deep commitment to the ideals of an education worthy of that name.
