Faculty Profile

Stephen Bressett

Adjunct Faculty and Doctoral Faculty Advisor



Stephen J. Bressett

Adjunct Professor

I have been teaching at Franklin since 2020

I am very interested in helping students work through dissertation issues and would love to serve on their committee! I only recently completed my doctorate, so I believe I have a lot to offer students who are working through the process currently. I can help by sharing my experience and giving expert advice on organization, editing, time management, and other successful techniques. 

I am interested in ANY topics!!

I am in the Active Duty Air Force and currently stationed in Germany! While this is an incredible opportunity to learn and grow, it offers some complications in timely communication. I am +6 hours from Eastern Standard Time. Below, I am posting a number of ways to reach me directly – and of course, you can always reach me on Canvas. I will return your messages (email, private message, text, etc.) as soon as I can given the time difference and our busy lives.

I can be reached on WhatsApp at: 413-522-2607 or on Signal at: +49 174-890-7857

My preferred email is: stephen.bressett@franklin.edu
