Dr. Daniel Corcoran

Part-time Faculty - Glenn R. Jones College of Business

Dr. Corcoran currently serves as a faculty lead and a doctoral committee mentor at Trident University. Prior to entering academia he worked as an administrator for the US Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration. During that time he presented at over 150 different forums. He holds two professional certifications in the field of occupational safety and health.

I joined Trident University International first as a doctoral student and then as an online professor. I find working in the world of online education extremely rewarding. For the first time in history educational opportunities are being brought directly to students who cannot simply walk away from their professions to attend classes at a brick a mortar university. Is a great feeling to be able to help these highly capable professionals achieve their educational goals.
