Meet new Heidelberg professor, Arthur Frazier!

The School of Business has welcomed a new economics specialist to its faculty. Meet new Heidelberg associate professor of business, Arthur Frazier!
Professor Frazier is a big fan of a small community. His previous teaching appointments at Bryant and Stratton College, Ursuline College, Cleveland State University, John Carroll University and Cuyahoga Community College all brought him closer to the intimacy that folks experience at Heidelberg. “I love the liberal arts college feel that Heidelberg has,” he explained. “I’ve loved interacting with students, fellow faculty members and the staff of Heidelberg between classes.”

Professor Frazier currently serves as a professor of business to Heidelberg students, but his expertise is wide and varied. Over the past 20 years, Arthur has taught courses ranging from marketing and sales principles to political science and pre-law. His bread-and-butter, of course, is micro and macroeconomics. Here at the ’Berg, he’s teaching microeconomics, macroeconomics, principles of economics and business analytics. “When you come into my class, you’ll leave having learned something that can be applied to life experiences,” Arthur offered. “I like to look into the world the way it really is. We tie that reality to theories, which helps the students interact and relate to these big ideas and the realities they’ve experienced.”

Economics is more than imaginary math – the study is a social science of sorts, understanding the impact that cultural experiences and politics can have on how people spend and invest their money. It involves, therefore, real-life experiences, and working through some real, big issues. “I’m a big proponent of the idea, there’s no such thing as a stupid question,” Arthur continued. “And I encourage open discussion and dialogue that contributes to learning. I invite you to challenge what I say, and we’ll learn from each other’s experiences and analyze and problem-solve together.”

To students who have Professor Frazier this semester, or will be taking his classes in the coming years, he’s excited to help you tackle these huge, but practical, topics. “You will learn economics, and I’ll make sure you feel you can express your feelings about all that we discuss.”
