Matt Slaymaker, M.F.A.

Instructor of Applied Computer Science | Applied Technology Co-Chair

A fresh face at William Penn University, Professor Matt Slaymaker started in the fall of 2016 to teach students general programming, business and communication applications, as well as game design. Specializing in computer graphics, animation, and programming, his teaching appeals to many traditional and non-traditional students. Hands-on is the main approach for Professor Slaymaker, with most of his classes being lab- and project-based.

For Professor Slaymaker, it’s clear that William Penn values the individual experience for each and every student that attends classes here. “Particularly when we see students who struggle, that will always serve as an opportunity to help them succeed,” he believes. “Most colleges say they do that but there is an emphasis here that is unlike others.  We go to extraordinary lengths to keep students and help them find their place.  It’s not just about regurgitation of information, it’s about finding a place for students where they belong.”
