Professor of Sociology; BA, Wichita State University; MA, University of Wyoming; PhD, University of Virginia
Professor Daniel Stuhlsatz has been a faculty member at Mary Baldwin University since 1999. He received his bachelor’s degree in anthropology from Wichita State University, his master’s degree in sociology (University of Wyoming) and PhD in sociology (University of Virginia). He has worked as a sociologist at both the University of Virginia and at Mary Baldwin University.
“Dr. Dan” teaches courses in social inequality, social movements, environmental sociology and the sociology of religion. His goal is to share his passion for social and cultural diversity. His courses focus on this diversity both within the United States and around the world. Students are usually given the opportunity to investigate social issues in which they may be interested. Dr. Dan also supports a program of educational research with students. Students work with Professor Stuhlsatz for one or more semesters on some aspect of his ongoing research in the sociology of education. One major focus of this work is the relationship between financial resources and educational achievement. Another is the investigation of status relations among young children. Finally, Dr. Dan periodically teaches “study abroad” courses which include international travel.
Dr. Stuhlsatz was born and raised in “the West” (Kansas and Wyoming), and in his spare time enjoys hiking, mountaineering, bicycling, swimming, birds, flowers, and “nature”. He also enjoys the education that he himself receives on a daily basis from his family, including especially from his son.
