Friday, March 15, 2019 was the 91st birthday of Arthur Albert “Art” Schulte, Jr., who served the University of Portland exceptionally for 45 years. Schulte arrived on The Bluff in 1958 as an accounting professor. Later, he served as the dean of the business school and graduate school, executive and financial vice president, special assistant to the president, and twice as acting president. Schulte retired from University of Portland in 2003. Among his many contributions, Schulte is remembered for his distinctive role in transitioning University of Portland from a financial crisis in 1971 to a fiscally stable institution in 1975. He passed away last year on September 24, 2018, at the age of 90.
In appreciation for Schulte’s extraordinary leadership and service, Shiley School of Engineering professor Aziz Inan constructed a collection of arithmetical birthday trivia in his honor. See the full collection here.
