Mel Ganus, EDD

Adjunct Professor

Areas of Interest

High Impact Teaching, Emotional Management, Crisis Preparedness & Resiliency, Radical Inclusivity, Universal Design, Applied Psychology, Social Change, and… ADHD! (can you tell?)

Why USD?

I got both my MBA and EdD at Seattle University, a sister school to USD, and I LOVE the ethos of servant leadership. “With great privilege comes great responsibility,” right? Being in service to other educators is a dream come true!

Advice for Future Students?

You are the client, investing for your education, with your time and money. Ask for what you need and find the instructors you most want to learn from. Connect with the other instructors and students – the relationships you build here will make a difference throughout your life.

Fun fact about yourself?

I love stream of consciousness writing, especially soaking in a jacuzzi while using waterproof paper. Hydrotherapy for the win!
