About Steve Berglund

Stories — true, almost true, or simply untrue — have always been part of who Steve Berglund is, and for 35 years, Steve has made CMU part of his story. Each student, from the hundreds of classes he has taught; each actor, stage manager, designer and technician from the more than 70 CMU University Theatre productions that he has directed have all played a role in creating this amazing story that continues to foster and promote student success.

Steve retires in August of 2021 as the first and current chair of the new Department of Theatre and Dance. During his 35 years at Central, Steve has served as Chair, Assistant to the Dean, Director of University Theatre, Area Coordinator, and has chaired committees such as Artist Course and the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee. He has been an integral part of CMU Summer Theatre, which tours productions to venues around the state, and served as the first Chair of the Music Theatre Interdisciplinary Council.

For years, Steve has helped to provide opportunities for students outside the classroom. Steve understands that a professional theatre experience or participation in a regional or national professional conference can truly make all the difference in a student’s life. Most recently he developed the Student Michigan Theatre Tour, a venture that provides free tickets and transportation to students so they can attend professional theatres in Michigan. Integral to those visits to professional theatres are talkback sessions with actors, directors, designers, stage managers and producers, often including CMU alumni, which help our students begin to network, learn about career opportunities in the industry, and get a real sense of what it is like to work in professional theatre.
