Campus Memorial Service for Richard Neville, Emeritus Dean
The UMBC community is invited to a memorial service for Richard (Dick) Neville on April 26 at 3 p.m. on the 7th Floor of the Albin O. Kuhn Library & Gallery. Neville, who passed away last month, was one of our founding faculty members and played a critical role in the University's development. The service is an opportunity for the campus community to pay tribute to Neville and his numerous accomplishments. The historical significance of his work, which helped to shape UMBC's vision and direction, is of lasting importance to all of us at UMBC.
Neville first joined the UMBC faculty in 1969 as professor and chair of the Department of Education. During his 27-year career at UMBC, he also served as dean of education and dean of arts and sciences, and as senior advisor to the president and provost. He served as acting provost at University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute from 1991 to 1994. In recognition of his outstanding academic leadership and service, he was named dean emeritus at UMBC after he retired in 1995.
Please share information about the memorial service with faculty, staff, alumni and students who might be interested in attending. For more information, please contact Faye Gibbs, director of public relations, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 410-455-6380.
