Jim Phillips

Dean, Humanities, Social Sciences, and Fine Arts
Office Number: M-228

History is more than dates and names of people. A lot of history and political science is someone else's interpretation. Highland instructor Jim Phillips wants students to challenge those interpretations and form their own opinions of what happened.

Jim hopes that students will walk out of his classes with a better understanding of the world they live in and how it has been shaped by past events. Jim also wants students to question statements rather than just taking them as facts.

Jim is a sports enthusiast. He is a loyal fan to the Green Bay Packers, Notre Dame and the Fighting Leathernecks of Western Illinois University. Jim jokingly recommends that students share his passion for his favorite teams.
