Professor Lauren Hetrovicz
An Adjunct Lecturer in the Department of Hispanic Studies since 2015, Professor Hetrovicz completed doctoral coursework at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where she also earned her M.A. in Hispanic Linguistics and her B.A. in Spanish and Linguistics. She is a faculty-favorite among students at the College of Charleston where she has taught all levels of basic Spanish language, Spanish Composition and Conversation for Spanish majors and minors, and curriculum in the Linguistics program. Outside of the classroom, Professor Hetrovicz has also collaborated in various capacities at both the departmental and campus-wide levels, to include the Hispanic Studies Distance Education Committee and as faculty panel member for newly admitted students, among other activities. In her own words:
Working at the College has been such a pleasure these past three years; I have been surrounded by exceptional students and colleagues who have inspired me to continue growing and learning. Campus involvement opportunities have also enriched my experience, such as being a member of the Linguistics Studies committee, Linguistics Club Advisor, Adjunct Senator and Global Scholar.
The Department of Hispanic Studies congratulates Professor Lauren Hetrovicz for her admirable commitment to students, her academic unit, and the College of Charleston, and for being selected for our April 2018 “Hispanic Studies Faculty Focus.”
