Faculty Focus: James Duff

James Duff, OSU Institute of Technology alumni and Electrical Construction instructor, never thought his passion for learning would lead to the front of the classroom. “Attending college as an older student, I naturally fell into a mentor role and would pour into my classmates, give advice, and try to build them up before interviews.
