Steven Neuse, Former Political Science Department Chair, Passes Away

Steven Neuse, former chair and professor in the Department of Political Science in the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences, passed away Friday, May 26, 2017.

Neuse began teaching at the University of Arkansas in 1981, where he taught until his retirement in 2001. Along with teaching and research, Neuse served as the chair of the department from 1998-2001 and the director of public administration from 1981 to 1990. He was the president of the Arkansas Political Science Association from 1990-1991 and co-founded the Arkansas Public Administration Consortium, which provides training and certificate programs among other resources for public managers and volunteer managers.
