Bruszewski Elected to NACUBO Board of Directors
Millersville’s Vice President for Finance and Administration, Roger Bruszewski, has been elected to the board of directors for the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO). Bruszewski’s role as an at-large director will begin with the September 23-24 meeting at NACUBO’s office in Washington, D.C.
NACUBO is an organization dedicated “to advance the economic viability and business practices of higher education institutions in fulfillment of their academic missions.” It is the thought leader and authoritative resource for business and financial management of higher education and is recognized as such by key internal and external stakeholders.
Bruszewski has been with Millersville since 2007. Prior to Millersville he was vice president for administration and finance at Frostburg State University in Maryland. Bruszewski earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the State University of New York at Plattsburgh, an M.B.A. from Youngstown State University and is a Ph.D. candidate in educational administration and policy at the State University of New York at Buffalo.
Miller Elected AFSCME President
Deb Miller, office manager in University Communications & Marketing, was elected president of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) Local 2421. Miller takes the reins from James Robertson, who retired in July after approximately eight years of service as president.
Former AFSCME vice president, Miller, was elected as the union’s new president, and chief steward Dave Schrober, maintenance operations, was elected as vice president.
Since its foundation in 1971, Millersville’s AFSCME has become the largest union on campus reaching approximately 400 members. As president and vice president, Miller and Schrober will oversee all operations including regular business routine work and grievance processes.
Miller says that grievances are rare, “The AFSCME leadership and the management at Millersville have worked well together in the past and I’m confident we’ll continue to have a good working relationship. I’m excited to begin working with Dave to ensure that our bargaining unit contract is followed and that every staff member is treated fairly and with dignity and respect.”
Dr. Sam Earman, earth sciences, is a co-author of the paper “Multiple isotope forensics of nitrate in a wild horse poisoning incident,” which was recently published in the peer-reviewed publication Forensic Science International.
Congratulations to Casey N. Diener, intercollegiate athletics, on her recent marriage to Jeremy Horning on June 12.
