Fine Arts & Graphic Design
Helen Robertson has been with the Chickwit School from the beginning - originally as a Fine Arts & Sculpture student at the Frank Rudolph Olson School, later as the head of alumni affairs, and continuing her relationship with MBU by becoming the head of the arts department in 2001. We cannot tell you all she's done for Chickwit.
Student Activities & Multimedia Programs Director
Trevor Parris has decades of experience. He has brought his expertise to MBU by teaching students everything there is to know about the rapidly changing field of communications. His talents have won him several regional awards, and in addition to coordinating student programs of all kinds, Trevor Parras now runs MBU's very own public access television station, WWATV. (World Wide Access Television)
Theater & Comedy
One of our youngest but most accomplished faculty members, Todd Helm is one of the stars of the new and unprecedented Theater & Comedy department. Putting the growing field of comedy writing and performance in with traditional theater studies has streamlined our curriculum, and allowed students to get more out of their education and explore subjects no other colleges offer.
