Dr. Art Neuburger has been named Professor Emeritus of Kansas Wesleyan University. Dr. Neuburger taught biology at Kansas Wesleyan for 40 years, served as the chair of the biology department for 16 of those years, Faculty Marshal for 12 years, including eight as Head Marshal before retiring in 2011. Dr. Neuberger served the University in many ways, presiding over the faculty for seven years, chair of the Faculty Affairs Committee, and also was key in obtaining a $50,000 grant for the purchase of microscopes and other equipment.
“I’m certainly pleased that my colleagues felt I was worthy of the honor,” said Neuburger. “I’m proud of my longevity, and that so many of our biology majors excelled at KWU. They were leaders on campus and were a bunch of good kids over the years.”He also noted that several of his biology students received outstanding student awards at graduation.
For the last 20 years of his career Dr. Neuburger kept American Kestrels on the roof of science building and released them into the wild.
Dr. Neuburger is married to Connie, a former teacher from the KWU nursing program and they live in Lawrence. The Neuburgers are extremely busy babysitting their two granddaughters, 4 and 3mos and trying to get a lawn established during drought! Neuburger hopes to connect with the University of Kansas on a part-time or volunteer basis.
