Ohio Univ. Endowed Gift, Alumni Events, & UMD Chapter Activities (Sept. 2018)

Ohio University shared the news of a charitable gift from Dean Emeritus T. Richard “Dick” Robe, Ph.D., P.E. (OH D ’55), in support of the Ohio Delta Chapter of Tau Beta Pi. “I’ve been a strong supporter because of Tau Beta Pi’s important role in engineering education, and since my role at the beginning of Ohio Delta in 1954 when I was the chapter’s second president,” he said.
