Frisch, president of City University of Seattle. “Our students finish their programs in large part because of our faculty who are practitioner-scholars. Our faculty teach. They aren’t mentors or coaches, they practice their discipline during the day and teach at night or on weekends. This ranking recognizes City University’s flexible scheduling and our outstanding faculty.”
