Most of her education career has been in biblical higher education. Although she has often had an administrative role, including many responsibilities with accreditation, Professor Mitchell feels teaching in the classroom and at conferences is her most enjoyable role. Dr. Mitchell joined CIU as a resident faculty member in 1997 although she has been an adjunct professor since 1991. When not teaching, Connie enjoys traveling with her husband George.
