CHADRON – Chadron State College Interim Director of Assessment Dr. David Nesheim was recently elected to the Nebraska Humanities Council. Nesheim was elected in January and began his duties in April. He said his service is expected to last six years.

Nesheim was nominated by Dr. Mark Ellis, professor of history at the University of Nebraska-Kearney.

“It is a privilege to represent Chadron State and to help bring quality humanities programming to the Panhandle,” Nesheim said.

Nesheim, who taught history at Chadron State from 2012 prior to joining the assessment office, considers himself an environmental historian. He taught courses on Great Plains and American History at CSC and published several articles on buffalo husbandry in the 20th century. In 2015 and 2015, he presented Chautauqua workshops on the dispossession of Plains Indians to audiences in Scottsbluff and Alliance for Humanities Nebraska.

In addition to staff members, Humanities Nebraska has 19 council members and 21 foundation members. Of the 40 total Nebraskans, six live inside Chadron State College’s service region.

According to its website, board members are selected statewide from nominees who show a strong interest in the humanities and the cultural life of Nebraska, with special emphasis on community leaders from the state’s diverse geographic, occupational and ethnic constituencies.

Humanities Nebraska pursues to achieve a balance of scholarly involvement in the humanities and other community endeavors through sponsoring statewide events and awarding grants.
