Greg Veltman

Greg Veltman and his wife, Andrea, live in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Together they are mentors at Nizhoni House, one of five Project Neighborhood programs run through Calvin College. Nizhoni is an off-campus, intentional living-learning community which practices the presence of place to love and serve neighbors and neighborhoods for the renewal of the city.

Greg is currently pursuing a Ph.D. at the University of Pittsburgh, with a focus on the philosophy and sociology of education. He has taught Social Foundations of Education at the University of Pittsburgh and Grand Valley State University, as well as sociology and the humanities at Geneva College.

Greg loves conversations at the intersection of higher education and culture, as well as engaging and discerning popular film and music. Most of the time you will find him reading a book or Wired or Fast Company magazine, listening to Garrison Keillor’s News from Lake Wobegon podcast, or watching a TED talk. He also delights in the poetry of Steve Turner.
