Dr. Squires has been teaching writing and literature classes for 30 years at a variety of institutions, community college, regional university, public liberal arts, private liberal arts, and for the last 20 years, Christian liberal arts.

An Oregon native, Felicia returned to Oregon in 2016 to serve as Corban’s Director of Assessment and Institutional Research, and since arriving at Corban has been able to teach an occasional class for the humanities department in writing or literature. Dr. Squires also teaches humanities classes for the OSCI Corban Extension campus to incarcerated adults.

Married to her husband Charles since 2005, together they have 8 children and 5 grandchildren. In her free time, Felicia enjoys walking her dog, swimming with her teenager, hiking with her husband, and going to the beach with whomever she can. She is also active in her church’s women’s and small group ministries.

“A faith-based liberal arts education is the greatest contribution we at Corban can make to the church. To disciple young adult Christians to integrate their faith in all aspects of their lives — their work, their families, their activities — and to openly share their faith with those around them is an honor.” `
