Music Faculty Inducted into Interprofessional Academy of Educators

Dr. Melissa Berke and Dr. Matthew Brooks

Dr. Melissa Berke, Professor of Music and Associate Dean of the College of Communication, Fine Arts and Media (CFAM), and Dr. Matthew Brooks, Assistant Professor of Music and Director of Orchestral Activities in Music & Medicine, were both honored by the UNMC Interprofessional Academy of Educators (IAE) and inducted as Affiliate Members on September 30. The IAE is a community of educators from across UNMC’s campuses, and select partners, which is dedicated to serving UNMC’s educational mission by promoting the use of best practices by all educators and fostering and disseminating educational research and innovation. While being welcomed into the Academy is a distinct honor, IAE is service-oriented and members are expected to give back to UNMC through service.

Dr. Berke and Dr. Brooks are both participating faculty in the UNO Medical Humanities program and each are involved in activities/research with partners at UNMC, in addition to their roles serving the UNO School of Music and CFAM.
