College of Letters and Science Testimonial

Dick Huseby
"I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from UWSP in 1972 with a major in Psychology and a minor in English, an unlikely combination of academic disciplines. For the past 35 years, I have worked in leadership positions in education, the armed forces, and the insurance industry. Successfully managing change and resolving conflict in a performance based environment demanded solid leadership ability, team building skills, and concise communication. Looking back, I easily trace the knowledge I needed to develop these personal traits to the positive educational experience I had in the College of Letters and Science at UWSP, earning my degree. The support and encouragement I received from the faculty gave me the confidence I needed to step forward in future work settings, accepting responsibility, and achieving results. Little did I know back in 1972 how important understanding human behavior and effectively communicating goals and results would be to consistently producing successful outcomes. I no longer consider Psychology and English strange bedfellows but partners in my personal and professional growth."
