Justin Neufeld has been an Instructor of Philosophy at CMU since 2008.

What are you teaching right now that you're most excited about?

They each have a very different flavour and I enjoy the variety. I love that because of the size of the institution, you get a chance to get to know students better. In a place like the voice studio, where I don't just teach students for one semester, I get to see them grow over a longer period of time and that's very rewarding.
