Jeanne Arntzen is retiring after 34 years of continuous and dedicated service to Macalester College. When Jeanne was hired in 1984, she worked for both Speech Communications and the Dramatic Arts and Dance departments. As the Theatre and Dance program grew, Jeanne moved into full-time work with that department, where for 60 semesters she has ably and enthusiastically worked with tenured and adjunct faculty, artistic staff, guest teachers and artists, and hundreds of student employees, majors and minors, in the multi-faceted work of keeping an academic department and a performance season humming. In 2000, Jeanne marched at Commencement as the very last Adult Scholar, receiving her BA in sociology. Also in 2000, she was presented with the Macalester College Outstanding Staff Award in recognition of her extraordinary contributions to the ​Theatre and Dance ​Department and ​Macalester​ ​C​ollege.

 

Jeanne's actual planned retirement date is at the end of the academic year. She wishes to celebrate her career in the theater before it is taken down to make way for the new building.
