Programs across The Faison Center average a 3:1 student-to-teacher ratio. With the new facilities that will house increased enrollment come the expenses of expanded staffing, technology, infrastructure, and overhead. As new clinical, teaching and administrative staff come on board to launch new programs, the philanthropic investment will cover the start-up costs until enrollment covers expenses.
