Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College officials announced Calvin Becker as the new Business and Technology department chair. Becker has served as an instructor at NEO since 2013.
Becker began teaching at NEO in 2013 in the Business and Technology department. He teaches several courses within the sports management and business administration degree programs and is the lead faculty for the NEO Love’s Cup team, which participates in an Oklahoma statewide collegiate business plan competition.
A Miami, Oklahoma native, Becker graduated from NEO before completing his bachelor’s degree in marketing from Oklahoma State University. Prior to teaching at NEO, he completed his MBA through Missouri State University and worked in the banking industry. He and his wife, Sasha, have two daughters, 4 and 8 years old, and live in Miami.
Becker participates in multiple institutional committees, including the curriculum committee he previously chaired, the marketing committee, COVID task force, and the strategic planning committee. He served as senator, vice president, and faculty senate president.
“Within his department, Becker is proactive in making recommendations for improvement in the program and the greater good of the Business and Technology students,” said Dr. Joy Bauer, the former Business and Technology department chair who has accepted another position at NEO.
Becker also supports NEO students by regularly attending athletic events and often opens his home to students who need a place to stay when campus is closed. He is a dynamic instructor for both in-person and online courses and actively seeks opportunities for students to experience real-world learning.
