Seton Hill University Vice President Christine Mueseler Appointed to Pa. Humanities Council
Seton Hill University Vice President for Institutional Advancement and Marketing Christine Mueseler was recently elected to the board of the Pennsylvania Humanities Council, a nonprofit organization representing Pennsylvania in the Federal-State Partnership of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
As a council member, Mueseler will serve on the Development Committee, which considers and recommends ways to expand public participation in and support for Pennsylvania Humanities Council programs.
“I am eager to serve on this board because I am very much committed to the mission of PHC,” said Mueseler. “PHC ‘inspires individuals to enjoy and share a life of learning, enriched by human experience across time and around the world. Through programs and partnerships, PHC fosters the sharing of stories and ideas – to increase understanding and a large vision of human life, community, and possibility.’”
According to Pennsylvania Humanities Council executive director Joseph J. Kelly, “Over the next three years PHC will be a greater resource for Pennsylvanians, sparked by our new media project, Humanities on the Road . We will also contribute to our civic life, fostering dialogue on contentious topics, many of them timely for the Civil War anniversary period, 2011-15. Christine will be integral to the success of those efforts.”
Mueseler’s association with the Pennsylvania Humanities Council dates from the early 1990s. As the former director of Seton Hill’s Women’s History Center, she was a local coordinator for the Council’s statewide project “Raising Our Sites: Women’s History in Pennsylvania.”
Mueseler, of North Huntingdon, Pa., has worked at Seton Hill since 1991 in several capacities. Since 1998, Mueseler has been the vice president for Institutional Advancement and Marketing at Seton Hill University. Mueseler holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in history from Seton Hill University and a Master of Arts degree in history from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
