Robert Brooks received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Idaho with a dual-major of Zoology and Chemistry with an Art Design minor. His Master of Science degree in Human Biodynamics and Physiology is from the University of Wisconsin. Most recently, Robert's Ph.D. was earned at Washington State University, where he again dual-majored and authored two dissertations in the disciplines of Biomechanics and Health Services Education.
Robert worked as an Anatomical Pathologist at the Washington State University's Human Anatomy Lab for nearly a decade. He has been a Visiting Professor at Wake Forest University; an Assistant Professor at Lyndon State College in Vermont; an Assistant Professor/Director of Biomechanics Laboratory at Pacific University in Oregon; and an Assistant Professor at Fort Lewis College in Colorado.
Along with teaching duties at Husson, he also pursues his own research interests. Most recently, those interests have involved cellular mechanisms associated with aging, muscle growth and wasting. He is interested especially in the effects of swimming on the body.
Nancy Bubar serves as executive assistant to the president, secretary to the Board of Trustees, and is active in Husson event planning. She has been with Husson since 1991, working in admissions, the information center and in telephone communications, as well as serving as advisor to the International Club, before joining the president's office in 2000.
Born and raised in Aroostook County, the daughter of a potato farmer, Nancy graduated from Ricker Classical Institute in Houlton in 1966, and from Beal College, with a degree in business, in 1969. Prior to coming to Husson, she was employed with Steven's Studio, as well as with a private physician's office in Bangor.
Nancy and her husband Cal reside in Brewer, are in real estate and as of late, take pleasure in “flipping houses.” They enjoy traveling adventures both here and abroad with their three grown children Amy, Heidi '02 (Psychology) and Ben '03 (Business Administration). The Bubar family is proud to have added Husson alumna, Madhu Adhikari '02 (Business Administration--Hospitality Management) of Nepal, as daughter number three.
