Dr. Kevin G. Quinn has been at St. Norbert College since 1994. He earned as B.S. in 1983 in Physics and Mathematics from Loyola University in Chicago, and an M.B.A. in Marketing and Economics from the University of Illinois-Chicago in 1989. Prior to earning his Ph.D. in energy and environmental economics from UIC, he worked in the private sector in aerospace and medical imaging industries.

Dr. Quinn has served as the College's Associate Academic Dean, as Associate Dean of the Social Sciences, and Coordinator for the Economics discipline. He was named the founding dean of the Schneider School in 2014.

A native of the Chicago area, Dr. Quinn taught at Loyola and at UIC before arriving at St. Norbert. His primary research focus during the past number of years has been in the field of sports economics. One of his books, Sports and Their Fans, which examines the history, economics and culture of the relationship between spectator and sport, grew out of material that he had gathered for his Econ 340 students. He is a regular guest economist on Wisconsin Public Radio's Ideas network, and hosts the "Conversations from St. Norbert College" television program.

Dr. Quinn and his wife Terry remain Bear-fans-in-exile. Don't ask him about the glorious 1985 season unless you have time to kill.
