Faculty and Staff

At the heart of our academic program is our greatest resource: our talented and compassionate faculty and staff who facilitate critical thinking and problem solving skills, which inspire students to love learning. 

When recent IWA graduates return to campus, they frequently note that their academic preparedness surpassed their college classmates, and they enthusiastically attribute this to the qualified, dedicated and passionate faculty and staff.

We are a Top Workplace!

IWA has been recognized as a 2018 Top Workplaces by The Houston Chronicle. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC.

“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “It’s an achievement that organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”

President of IWA Sister Lauren Beck, C.V.I. added, "It is my belief that people make deliberate choices when seeking out the best workplaces to use their gifts and skills.  It is great to see that our employees recognize us as a welcoming, caring  and employee supportive environment.  It is also an honor to be recognized throughout the city."
