Meet Chitranjan Greer-Travis

Earning his Ph.D. in Philosophy of Education

“I recalled my experience at The University of Toledo as a student in the Philosophy M.A. program. I was challenged and nurtured in the program in such a way that I wanted to ‘return to my roots,’ so to speak. In my quest to follow my dreams and live a bit more authentically, I gave graduate school some thought. Philosophy of Education appealed to me after falling in love with teaching philosophy. I also appreciate the social and political investigations that are investigated.”

I think it would be better for students to hear about Latin American, African and other cultures earlier in their education.”
