Associate Professor, History

Thomas Peace, PhD
My goal as a professor is to accompany students as they transition from directed learning environments cultivated in secondary school to the undirected learning environments they will meet in the future.

The faculty and staff at Huron work hard to build unique learning environments that introduce key ideas and thinkers, teach how to navigate institutional structures, and incorporate students into academic and professional networks. Essentially what this means is that a student will learn much from our individual classes, but beyond the classroom, their education will be formed by the relationships they’ve developed and we’ve helped to foster during their time with us at Huron.
