About Dr. Suzanne Hequet
Dr. Suzanne Hequet began teaching full-time at Concordia University in August 2012. Prior to that, she taught at Concordia College, Moorhead, MN, and St. John's University and School of Theology, Collegeville, MN.
Hequet has a passion for Church History, in particular the 16th century Reformation. This period marked the division of the Roman Catholic Church, a topic that Hequet researched in her book, The 1541 Colloquy at Regensburg: In Pursuit of Church Unity (2009).
"I am truly blessed to be able to teach church history. I learn from my students! And my study and teaching continually enriches my personal faith-life."

Following the successful defense of my doctoral thesis, my husband, Marc, handed me a beautiful rose—a sign of his steadfast love and support. Shortly thereafter, I traveled to Lutherstadt Wittenberg to research and see for myself the places that were so important in Luther's life.
