2017 Professors Emeriti: Murray, Rodgers, and Wiese
As the 2016-27 academic year comes to a close, the Anderson University Board of Trustees voted to confer emeritus status upon three departing faculty members.
“Faculty emeritus status is conferred by the Board of Trustees to certain faculty members who retire after having served the university under honorable circumstances for a total of 15 or more years,” Provost Marie Morris explained.
Having served the university for 37 years in the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance, Dr. Mark Murray has been recognized for academic excellence and artistic creation during his years by being elected to the rank of Professor Emeritus of Music.
Dr. Reginald Rodgers has served in the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance for 34 years. He has been recognized for academic excellence and piano performance by being elected to the rank of Professor Emeritus of Music.
After 27 years of service in the Falls School of Business, Dr. Michael Wiese retires with recognition for academic excellence and caring for students and faculty by being elected to the rank of Professor Emeritus of Marketing.
“All of these faculty members have served with distinction and modeled the core values of the university. They have given selflessly to their respective disciplines and will leave a lasting imprint on the university. As provost, I am both humbled and honored to have served with them and wish them God's richest blessings as they continue their life journey. I have every confidence that they will continue to live lives of impact. Anderson University is indeed blessed to count them among our faculty emeriti,” Morris said.
