Deborah Finch is an Associate Teaching Professor in the Manning School of Business. Her journey to teaching in higher education included homeschooling her four children until they went to college, and returning to college herself to earn an MBA and an Ed. D. Her active community involvement includes volunteering and serving on local nonprofit boards. Dr. Finch believes the best way a student can get an education is to take advantage of opportunities in experiential education, service learning, and study abroad experiences. She sees her role as a guide and facilitator, with the hope of helping her students become lifelong learners.
