The Berte Humanities Center—Longtime Birmingham-Southern President Dr. Neal R. Berte and his wife, Anne, stand at the main entrance to the newly refurbished building on campus that now bears their name.
During ceremonies on campus Oct. 2 to officially dedicate the renovation of the Phillips Science Building to house the academic programs of the college's Division of Humanities, Board of Trustees Chairman W. Michael Atchison announced that the trustees had unanimously approved earlier in the day the renaming of the facility as the Anne and Neal Berte Humanities Center.
At the same trustees meeting, Berte, who has been Birmingham-Southern's president for 28 years and guided the college to national stature in academics, the arts, and athletics, announced his retirement effective next year. Subsequently, the Board of Trustees gave the college's longest-serving president the title of chancellor and president. A search committee has been formed and a national search for a new president will begin immediately.
