Quentin Schultze Bio
I am a writer, speaker, mentor, and consultant. I retired early from Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan to form the Center for Servant Leadership Communication, which helps current and aspiring leaders become more virtuous, trusted, and skilled communicators. Please subscribe to this blog (note the email subscription link in the left column of each page) and my Tweets (@quentinschultze) to receive communication tips.
I earned a PhD from the Institute of Communications Research at the University of Illinois in Urbana–Champaign and taught at Drake University before joining the faculty at Calvin College, where I served until 2015 as the Arthur H. DeKruyter Chair and a Professor of Communication Arts and Sciences. I received the Presidential Award for Exemplary Teaching in 2000. I continue to lead master-teaching workshops for colleges and universities.
My numerous books include An Essential Guide to Public Speaking, Résumé 101: A Student and Recent-Grad Guide to Crafting Résumés and Cover Letters that Land Jobs, and most recently An Essential Guide to Interpersonal Communication. My scholarly publications have appeared in several dozen journals. I’ve written over a hundred articles for general-interest periodicals.
I have been quoted in many major media such as The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, Fortune, the Chicago Tribune, USA Today. I’ve been interviewed by CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC, NPR, and numerous radio and television stations.

The “e” in “Schultze” is silent, by the way.
