  • Our faculty are mentors

    SDGI offers learners an opportunity to work with a strong faculty of gifted and visionary educators from the U.S., Canada, and Asia.

    While they do teach, much of what they do is mentor and support learners—enriched by the leadership, scholarship, and innovation they do in their main jobs.
