Suzanne Stevens (BS63, MA65)

Suzanne Stevens (BS62, MS65) spent a long and fulfilling career at Eastern Michigan University. After working for several years as an elementary school teacher at Fletcher Elementary School in Ypsilanti, she was offered a full-time position at the University, where she stayed until retiring in 1997.Stevens, an emeritus professor in biology, enjoyed teaching students at EMU and getting them out of the classroom and into the field, taking them on field trips across the state to further enhance their biology education. She thoroughly enjoyed the time she spent teaching many off–campus classes through the Division of Continuing Education.

Stevens has created the Suzanne Stevens Endowed Scholarship in Science Education to provide financial support for students pursuing a major or minor in science education or biology, who plan to teach in elementary or middle school. Additionally, she has placed EMU in her estate plans and took advantage of the Charitable IRA Rollover last year.
