Joe Neill

Associate Dean, SAU Global – Student Success

Joe’s preferred method of learning is online. He likes that everything (reading, reflection and interaction between students and professors) comes together. There are no wallflowers allowed in an online classroom. Students have to engage. At SAU Online, he loves the way we value every student.

Outside of work, he enjoys fishing, spending time with his family and friends, social media, art, and photography.

About SAU Online

Since 1873, Spring Arbor University has helped students pursue wisdom by offering an education grounded in the Christian faith. What began as a small elementary and secondary school in the late 1800s has evolved into a premier private Christian university that offers engaging online programs designed to meet the unique needs of busy, working adults. While we’re not the only university to offer online degree programs, our distinction lies in our total commitment to providing educational excellence within a Christ-honoring and supportive online community.
