Dr. Terry D., BSEd '64, and Christine Keiser
Terry D. Keiser, BSEd ’64, has been professor of biological sciences, chair of the department of biological and allied health sciences (since 1988), and chair of the natural sciences and
mathematics (since 1998). During his tenure, he has promoted excellence and helped grow the department to include new programs and facilities. A generation of Ohio Northern students
have benefited from his enthusiasm and commitment to the study of biology, especially from hands-on learning in the field.
Christine Keiser, a graduate of Bluffton University, grew up in California. She had a career at Bank One and was a vice president in human resources (Chicago headquarters) when she retired.
Their commitment to students and Ohio Northern University is reflected by two endowed funds. They established The Terry and Christine Keiser Travel-Abroad Endowment to help students with their travel expenses, encouraging study abroad to facilitate understanding and appreciation of different cultures. They also established The Terry Keiser Professorship in Field Biology that helps support the salary for the professor who is committed to promoting and conducting biological field study. Both endowments are funded by bequest.
