He earned his B.A. in History from the University of Virginia and his M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. Before joining the faculty at the University of Northern Iowa, Professor Dise taught at Clinch Valley College—now the University of Virginia's College at Wise.
Professor Dise has delivered numerous papers at a variety of conferences on ancient history, classical studies, and archaeology.
