Meet IA Dept. Chair Danielle Faison     

Danielle FaisonDanielle Faison began her career at Capitol working in the distance learning department. When she was offered a teaching position, she was thrilled to be instructing students on a topic she truly loved: math. And she knew she'd be teaching in an environment that was the perfect fit for her.

"I always see [Capitol] as a little MIT," Faison said. "We're technical and even though we're small we're able to do a lot of big things. When new technology comes out, we're often able to be right on the cutting edge of it."

Faison began teaching at Capitol in 2003, and is currently the department chair for the information assurance program. Read the full interview with Danielle Faison.
