Brief Bio

"For me, HLGU is my extended family," said Dr. John Schafer. "Students from past and present make up my extended HLGU family. It gives me great pleasure to hear from students and learn about their careers and families."

After working at HLGU for over 20 years, many of Dr. Schafer's favorite memories revolve around students and the experiences he has shared with them, both in and out of the classroom.

Dr. John Schafer came to Hannibal-LaGrange University in 1987, along with his wife, Jane, who chairs the education department at HLGU. Prior to their move to Hannibal, the Schafers taught together in Colorado for almost 15 years. They have two daughters who graduated from HLGU and now teach in the local school district.
