A signer of Israel’s Declaration of Independence, Meir rises to become Prime Minister of Israel. Author Ann Atkins has lived and worked in Korea, England and Germany as a college instructor, counselor and director of a family support center. Her Flash History biography series includes: Eleanor Roosevelt—Unleashed, Golda Meir—True Grit and Marie Curie—A Nobel Life.

If you are an artist or know someone who is looking for a “gallery” in which to display an art collection, Neumann University can help. We will serve as a host site for emerging artists from the surrounding area to exhibit a body of artwork. This is an excellent opportunity to share your artistic talent with the University and the greater community. Art exhibits will hang in the University Library and typically run for two months. All works displayed will be in congruence with the mission of Neumann University.
