Dr. Charles Morscheck
June 21, 2017
Dr. Charles Morscheck, Art & Art History Professor, has made studying Art History at Drexel possible. He was patient, determined, and insistent in advocating for the creation of our Art History major. He was instrumental in creating the curriculum and has served as the Art History Co-Program Director since its inception just last year. His excellence in teaching was recognized with the University’s Lindback Award and Charles is a scholar of the Italian Renaissance. His many papers have been published in leading international journals and presented at important conferences. He has spent years working on a meticulously researched book about the Solari family of Italian Renaissance architects and sculptors.
He has been an important voice of conscience championing positions of integrity and ethical concern that speak to the best interests of our community. And, his life’s work has been an ongoing commitment to teaching and his students.
Charles was Chair of the Faculty Senate and played many other important roles for the Senate. He was the Director of the Pennoni Honors College Great Works Symposium for seven years, was a longstanding supporter and expert for the Drexel Collection, and has been a tireless champion of the Drexel Library. He has served on more College and University Committees than can be imagined, and his service was recognized with the University’s Harold Myers Award for Distinguished Service.
