Karen Cianci came to Fresno Pacific University in 2008 as dean of the School of Natural Sciences. She believes science is a wide-ranging issue not just for science majors but for everyone, and she sees a need for Christians to speak to the issues of the future. Considering herself a connector, she brings expertise and gifted teaching to young people who are looking for a call they can give their lives to. She has taught biology and psychology and served as vice-president of academic affairs as well as co-directed a large camp and retreat center.
