Jason Fetters graduated from Illinois State University, earning a Bachelor of Science in International Business and Spanish and a Master of Arts in Transatlantic Cultural Studies in Spanish. Before joining the Academy, Mr. Fetters spent nearly 20 years in higher education teaching all levels of Spanish while also coordinating Spanish language programs, first at Purdue University and then later at Indiana Wesleyan University. His affection for the Spanish language and its many people groups around the world began in high school. That affection has only grown through the years, with him taking advantage of every opportunity to speak the language as possible. Some of his personal, immersive language experiences include study abroad in both Mexico and Spain, humanitarian trips to Mexico, and teaching alongside Spanish speakers from all over the world. Some of his most memorable courses taught include Cuba: From Colony to Castro, The Religious World of Latin America, Spanish in Medical Contexts, Women Writers of Spain through the Centuries, Culture & Civilization of Spain, and Culture & Civilization of Latin America.
