Peter Schreffler, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of English

Department Chair


I am continually reminded that I have been the frequent beneficiary of grace from those in authority over me throughout my adult life, so I feel obligated to pass that on to my students. I am keenly aware that my students often present only a small and distorted piece of themselves in my courses and that they can never be defined as people by how well they have done in my class.
