Dr. Teddy Uldricks Retires After 33 Years at UNCA
Professor Ted Uldricks recently announced he will retire from UNCA at the end of the semester. Ted has faithfully served our university for 33 years as a member of the History Department and as the long-time Director of the Master of Liberal Arts Program. He is an outstanding teacher, scholar, and university citizen.
Since 1979, Ted taught courses in his specialties in Russian/Soviet History, World War II, and Modern European History. He has also regularly taught Humanities 324 and took responsibility for several of its large-group lectures. Students often comment on the depth and breadth of his knowledge and on his engaging lectures. Indeed, Ted is one of the most well-read, up-to-to-date, and erudite faculty members on this campus.
Ted is also widely recognized in the fields of Slavic Studies and for his scholarship on World War II. He is the author of a widely hailed book on Soviet Foreign Relations, has published more scholarly papers than I can list, serves as book review editor for a top journal in his field, and is well into the process of writing two books on World War II in global perspective.
Dr. Uldricks ably and willingly served the university and his department. His most notable accomplishment was his spearheading of the creation of the MLA program which he directed for 16 years. Since he stepped down from that position, he has continued to serve on the Graduate Committee, teaches regularly in the program, and has served as one of its chief champions on this campus.
Ted Uldricks has been an integral part of the department and the university. He will be sorely missed on our campus but we wish him, and his wife Marilyn, all the best as they move to Las Vegas for a new stage in their life.
