Get to Know Your Faculty: Petra M. Schweitzer, Ph.D.
By: Kevin Nealon and Cathy Loranger
Director of Gender & Women’s Studies and Professor of Comparative Literature Petra M. Schweitzer, Ph.D., initially came to America to expand her scholarship in a creative and collaborative learning environment.
She says that’s also one of the cultural traits that attracted her to Shenandoah University. Now having served at the university for 12 years, Dr. Schweitzer continues to encourage students to develop personally and intellectually with humor, compassion and humanity.
As a heartfulness coach, she also helps students to balance hearts and minds while building confidence and managing anxiety.
