That wouldn’t be possible without the faculty and staff who make the institution a worthwhile school at which to receive an education. With people such as Dr. Steven Verrone, an instructor for the Mark Skousen School of Business, Grantham offers not only a high level of support for its students, but a quality education that values the academic journey of each individual student.

We had a chance to speak with Dr. Steven Verrone and hear some of his thoughts about teaching at Grantham:

Grantham University: What brought you to Grantham?

Dr. Steven Verrone: I applied to teach at Grantham because I believe my teaching style and philosophy align well with Grantham’s philosophies.

GU: What do you like best about being a member of the faculty at Grantham?

SV: My greatest joy is teaching and being a small part in my students’ success. I enjoy seeing my students excel and learn in their courses at Grantham.

GU: How do you provide support to your students?

SV: I support my students by always being visible in the classroom, making substantive comments and providing meaningful feedback on time, every time. I am personable in class, treating each student with respect and being proactive in their academic work.

GU: How does a degree from Grantham help people accomplish their goals?

SV: A degree from Grantham is recognizable to many influential companies. A degree from Grantham, an accredited university, provides avenues to our students based on the relevancy of the curriculum.

GU: Do you have any advice for someone who is thinking about going back to school?

SV: My advice to any student going back to school is to stay focused on the end goal. Take small steps forward and continue to improve your academic skills every day.

GU: Do you have a particular research concentration?

SV: My research concentration is on intergenerational habits as they pertain to making decisions in the marketing environment. I have found distinct thinking patterns between intergenerational gaps. When applied messaging is formulated at the intergenerational level, marketing decisions can be tested and measured based on known thought patterns.

GU: What is your proudest accomplishment?

SV: A hard question. I think the most interesting thing about me is the fact that I can manage my time so efficiently. I seem to have a knack for making things happen no matter what the obstacle is.

GU: If someone were to tell your story, what would be the main thing you would want the listener to know about you?

SV: The number one thing I would want the listener to know about me is that I care and that I will do everything in my power to help those who may otherwise not be able to help themselves.

GU: Do you have a tip that could help students taking your classes?

SV: My advice would be to not take shortcuts. Always try your hardest, because that is all anyone will ever ask of you, and keep moving forward with your goals. Don’t sweat the small stuff.
