“Dr. Arthur Smith

Dr. Arthur Smith, “Doc Smith” to the students at WCUR taught classes in Geology, Science Education, and Electron Microscopy at West Chester University joining the faculty in 1984. He received his B.A., M.S., and Ed.D. at the University of Pennsylvania.  In 1975 Doc was selected as Pennsylvania’s Teacher of the Year and was one of four national finalists. In 1983 he received of the National Science Foundation’s Outstanding Educator in Science Award, and in 1992 the University of Pennsylvania Educator of the Year Award. A First Class Radiotelephone F.C.C. Licensee in 2007 Doc was selected Faculty Advisor, and after he retired Designated Control Operator (DCO) of WCUR. 

Doc believes that broadcast radio offers a unique opportunity for students to develop their leadership skills.  Students involved with WCUR receive amazing opportunities such as hosting their own radio shows, skill development, organization, planning and developing an on-air personality, or serving as station executive staff members in programming, music, finance, and other leadership positions that make the station function on a daily basis. Doc believes that any student can join WCUR knowing nothing about radio and become an integral member of the broadcast and operations team.”
