Bruce K. Nelson Remembrance & 102nd Birthday Event

This is a picture of Bruce K. Nelson on his 100th birthday.

We invite you to come by the Faculty Development Center to help celebrate Bruce and remember how he has impacted EMU. This event will be an "open-house" style event that will be held on November 13, 2017 from 10:00am-2:00pm. 

As you may know, the Faculty Development Center is named after Bruce K. Nelson. On Friday September 22, 2017, we sadly learned that Dr. Nelson passed away at the age of 101, just shy of his 102nd birthday. If you would like to learn more about Bruce K. Nelson, please click here
