Keiser Distinguished Lectureship in Life Sciences

Terry D. Keiser, BSEd '64

Named in honor of professor Terry D. Keiser, BSEd '64, the Keiser Distinguished Lectureship in Life Sciences brings nationally prominent life sciences scholars to Ohio Northern's campus each year to lecture and interact with students.

With an endowment of more than $1 million, the lectureship has been funded by gifts from alumni, friends and colleagues. Among the major gifts was a donation from Keiser's Northern classmates Robert Gronlund, BA '64, and his wife, DeOnne, of Lewisburg, Pa.

KeiserĀ  joined the Ohio Northern faculty in 1967, rising from instructor to professor of biological sciences to chair of the department. He served as the chair of the University Council and is the director of ONU's Metzger Nature Center. He was instrumental in establishing the Metzger Nature Center in Tuscarawas County, Ohio, and the ONU Tidd-Oakes Farm, a 300-acre wetlands restoration project just 12 miles from campus.
