Organized by GVSU's Hauenstein Center, the Wheelhouse Talks are a series of presentations from entrepreneurs, local leaders, business owners and visionaries who share their experiences to enrich the lives and learning of others, including a new cohort of students taking part in the Peter C. Cook Leadership Academy

A graduate of Cornell, Oxford, and Princeton, GVSU Classics Professor Charles Pazdernik has been recognized for his teaching, scholarship, and university leadership. Dedicated to his students’ growth, he instills in them the wisdom of the past and encourages them to “Plan Big.” Prof. Pazdernik’s own plans, however, were upended when he sustained a permanently disabling spinal cord injury last year. As he makes his return to his students and colleagues, he reflects upon what the ancient Greeks and Romans can tell us about overcoming obstacles.
