Portrait of Bimpe Diji
Experience: Dr. Diji has been teaching psychology since 2004. She taught six years at Covenant University, Nigeria, two years at the University of Northwestern, Minnesota, and has been at Century College since Spring 2012. In addition to teaching, she has experience in the "Read Right" instruction, which is a unique reading improvement methodology (brain science) that helps struggling readers become excellent readers. Likewise, she is involved in students' assessment at various levels and regularly participates in the Advanced Placement (AP) research program. Dr. Diji has also been active in the K-12 education system, including being an advocate of the Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) model designed to close the achievement gap and help students with high academic potential prepare for college/university. She is also a founding member and the current chair of a new PreK-12 charter school (Innovation science and technology Academy) in the Twin Cities, Minnesota. The goal of this unique charter school is to develop at an early age, globally conscious student innovators, and agents of change.
Teaching Approach: Dr. Diji's passion for teaching comes from a deep desire to contribute to students' success. She continuously seeks to inspire students through interactive learning and equips them with tools and strategies that promote personal growth and the fulfillment of their educational goals. Dr. Diji loves teaching and learning from various students' perspectives. The experiences she gained while working at a psychiatric hospital has deepened her love for humanity. Hence, she strives to be a better person to those around her each day. She has some publications on students' examination cheating attitude and behavior, workplace absenteeism, and leadership escalation behavior, but student success is truly her calling. She's just what you can call a Generalist Psychologist.
Education: BS, Psychology, University of Ibadan-Nigeria; MS, I-O Psychology, Covenant University-Nigeria; Ph.D., I-O Psychology, Walden University

Portrait of Susannah Dolance
Experience: Susannah Dolance grew up in Dallas, Texas and discovered her passion for Sociology early in her undergraduate studies at Texas Tech University, where she earned a BA in Sociology in 1997. She earned her Master's degree and PhD in Sociology at the University of Michigan. In 2004, Susannah moved from Michigan to Minnesota in order to teach Sociology and Gender Studies full-time at Century College. Her areas of interest are gender, sexuality, race, education, and social change.
Teaching Approach: "Discussion is at the heart of my teaching, no matter what class.�Because we examine big, sometimes controversial or difficult ideas, I believe we have to talk about them.�The diverse experiences and perspectives students bring to the class help everyone learn to think sociologically and critically."
Education: BA, Sociology, Texas Tech University; MA & PhD, Sociology, University of Michigan
Hobbies: Dr. Dolance lives with her partner in Northeast Minneapolis, where in her free time, she enjoys reading (especially fantasy and science fiction), biking, and cooking and eating good food.

Teaching Approach: "My favorite quote about teaching sums up my approach: 'None but the humble become good teachers of adults...Indeed, in some of the best adult classes it is difficult to discover who is learning most, the teacher or the students.' - Eduard Lindeman (as quoted in 'The Adult Learner' by Malcolm S. Knowles, p. 109)"

Portrait of Mike Eddy
Experience: Mike has been an instructor at Century College for over 10 years. With more than 30 years in the visual communication industry, Mike Eddy has experience in video production, photography, print, web, interactive kiosks, and stage productions. Mike has had the privilege to work with General Mills, Federated Insurance, 3M, Andersen Windows, Apple, Compassion International, South Washington County School District, 5 Eyewitness News, and many other media production companies in the Twin Cities area.
Teaching Approach: "I recently heard a football coach describe his job as �putting the players in the right position.' The player still had to execute the block or tackle, but the coach arranged them in the right place on the field to be successful. As a teacher, more of a coach or mentor, I see the analogy in this. I need to provide my students with three things: 1) The skills to compete. This could be software or equipment but also soft skills like professionalism. 2) The availability of proper equipment. What will they be using in the current industry? And 3) I need to provide balanced opportunities. By finding the right situation there is a balance of pressure from a real client to do a great job and the freedom to learn by trial and error."
Education: BA, Gustavus Adolphus College
Notable Achievements: Minnesota State Board of Trustees "Excellence in Teaching" Award; named a Century College Exemplary Educator

Experience: Dr. Engelen-Eigles has been teaching at the college level for over 25 years. Prior to joining the faculty at Century in 2004, she taught at the University of St. Katherine, St. Olaf College, and the University of Minnesota. From 2013-2015, she co-directed the task force that designed a comprehensive Honors Program for the College and brought it to the eve of implementation. Dr. Engelen-Eigles has extensive experience teaching online and blended courses, and currently mentors other faculty in online teaching strategies.
Teaching Approach: "I believe every student benefits from exposure to a broad range of ideas - in terms of subject matter as well as viewpoints. It is my hope that students leave my classes feeling like they have been challenged to think in new ways, to question taken-for-granted knowledge about the world around them, and to not just state - but to support - their arguments in discussions and essays."
Education: Ph.D. in Sociology, University of Minnesota; MS in Consumer Studies, Virginia Tech; Graduate Certificate in European Studies, Universit� Libre de Bruxelles; BA in Studio Art, Wesleyan University
Notable Achievements: 2011-2012 Fulbright Research Scholar, Seoul, Korea "Women with Disabilities in Korea: Experiences with Health Care"; "Why Honors is a Hard Sell in the Community College" (with Jan Milner), published in the Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, Fall/Winter 2014, Volume 15, Number 2, https://digitalcommons.unl.edu/nchcjournal/437/.
