Associate Professor, Church History and Comparative Religion

Bill Acres, PhD, FRHistS
My teaching aims to open students’ minds to new ways of thinking and seeing, and organizing and articulating their results. By bringing students into research and ideas the classroom becomes a very exciting place.

You get to know students very well: the Huron Advantage recognizes each person has a real interest in learning and making knowledge. Faculty play a unique role in their process. A liberal arts education means that learning can be shaped and honed into an exceptionally useful portfolio of skills and achievements. Huron’s method recognizes that learning is going to be something very individual and lived out in a close community of friends and faculty.
