Stanley Wood Memorial Scholarship

Stan Wood was Director of Theatre from 1956 until 1972 and it was under his leadership that UNI continued its tradition of excellence in educational theatre and began the development of the programs in performance and design that are currently offered. A student of Miss Strayer, he continued his work at UCLA and Western Reserve and brought back several innovations, including the construction of a studio theatre for student directed and designed work (now part of Sabin Hall) and the addition of a summer repertory theatre program in 1966. It was a student of Stan’s who did the initial designs for the Strayer-Wood Theatre and Stan lived to turn the first spade of dirt for the construction of the theater in 1975.
