Dr. Theising’s SIUE Homepage

Welcome to my homepage here at SIUE.  I’m very fortunate in my life because I get paid to do the work that I love.  I work with wonderful, intelligent, and creative people.  My institution respects academic freedom and allows me to flourish in my work.  At the end of the day, I get to make a difference in the lives of people and in the region where we all live.  What’s not to love about that?  Here you will find information about me and the work I do.  The work of any professor is divided between teaching, research, and service.  Please click on the appropriate link.  If you can’t find what you’re looking for, please let me know.

I believe strongly in the “metropolitan university” concept.  That means the university is engaged in the world around it and making a difference at street level.  I take that very seriously.  It’s the reason I choose to work here.  I hope you will come to SIUE and explore all that it has to offer.  The campus is beautiful.  It has clean architecture and thoughtful design (by world-renowned architect Gyo Obata).  It is a great place to learn—whether formally seeking a degree or informally satisfying curiosity.  It is a place of creative energy.  There is much to experience here, but the energy goes far beyond the campus walls.  It would be my pleasure to introduce you to it.
