Gladys Gruenberg, Ph.D.(Emeritus Faculty), Recognized for Service and Scholarship by National Academy of Arbitrators


The Missouri Valley Region of the National Academy of Arbitrators announced that the Academy honored long-time member Gladys W. Gruenberg at its Fall Education Conference held at the Hilton at the Ballpark in St. Louis on October 18-20, 2013. The entire conference was dedicated to her, and President James Oldham presented her with a plaque reciting her service since 1980, including service on the Academy’s Board of Governors (as a Governor and as a Vice President), the Research and Education Foundation, the Membership Committee, the Nominating Committee (as Chair), the History Committee as Chair, the Committee on New Member Orientation, the Chronicle Committee, and as a Regional Chair and Editor of the Proceedings.

When Professor Gruenberg was accepted as a member of the National Academy of Arbitrators in 1980, she was the only woman member in the state of Missouri. In 1997, on the occasion of the Academy’s 50th anniversary, she co-authored the Academy’s history titled “Fifty Years in the World of Work,” published by the Bureau of National Affairs (now Bloomberg).

Founded in 1947, the National Academy of Arbitrators is the only North American organization of labor arbitrators pledged, according to its Constitution, “to establish and foster the highest standards of integrity, competence, honor, and character among those engaged in the arbitration of labor-management disputes.” The Academy has about 600 members in the U.S. and Canada with national headquarters in Ithaca, N.Y.
