Program Coordinator, Lifelong Learning Institute

Hello! My name is Justin Whetzel, and I’m excited to introduce myself as the Program Coordinator for the Lifelong Learning Institute. Having previously worked in the Outreach & Engagement office as a student assistant in the summer of 2013, I’m ecstatic to reunite with familiar colleagues and serve in a more permanent role with the School of Professional and Continuing Education. I graduated from JMU in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in psychology and a minor in family studies. Attending college was a transformative experience for me, and it ignited a passion within myself for continuous growth and education. My hope is to inspire others to challenge themselves to achieve their educational goals, whether that be taking a non-credit class, completing a certificate course, or pursuing a degree. Learning is one of the most beautiful aspects of living. Through learning, we not only grow as individuals, we become more deeply connected to our community and the world. I look forward to working with the SPCE community and encouraging students in the Lifelong Learning Institute. 

In my spare time, I enjoy going to concerts, discovering new music, watching films, and spending time with my dog, Calvin.
